PNP Councillor under questioning
Narcotics investigators are seeking the help of Scotland Yard detectives to locate a Jamaican man who they believe is linked to a ganja find in St. James last month.

A People’s National Party (PNP) councillor from the parish who was arrested yesterday in connection with the find is still being questioned by detectives.

He was reportedly picked up at a construction site in Montego Bay.

The politician whose name is being withheld by investigators was escorted by narcotic detectives to Kingston from Montego Bay last evening.

Its reported that police personnel intercepted a 24-foot container with assorted lumber in Montego Bay on June 13.

The cargo which was destined for London contained 59 and a half pounds of compressed ganja hidden among the lumber.

Investigators believe the shipment was one of several from Jamaica to the UK.

Meanwhile PNP General Secretary Donald Buchanan says the party will withhold comment pending the outcome of the police investigation.
