Jamaican authorities arrested six individuals, including four employees of Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA), in coordinated anti-narcotics operations spanning St. Ann and the airport premises on Thursday.

The operations yielded a substantial seizure of contraband, notably cocaine with an estimated value exceeding $20 million.

Alongside 3.8 kilograms of cocaine, law enforcement confiscated 55 pounds of ganja, three motor vehicles, and over $1.2 million in cash.

In the initial phase of the operation, narcotics police intercepted two motor vehicles at the Eight Rivers Plaza in Ocho Rios.

A search uncovered 3.8 kilograms of cocaine ingeniously concealed within food packages. Additionally, authorities apprehended the drivers of the vehicles and seized a sum of $118,000.

Law enforcement then executed a raid at NMIA in Kingston.

A thorough search of a motor vehicle led to the discovery of 25 kilograms of ganja concealed inside a suitcase within the trunk.

Simultaneously, authorities seized $1.2 million found within the vehicle
