An operation by police in St Kitts and Nevis uncovered a large stash of drugs yesterday.

Search warrants were executed on two properties at Buckleys Estate.

The premises belonged to Steadman Adams and his son, Kwesi Adams.

Both were found with marijuana and arrested. Officers also found over EC$16,500 in Kwesi Adams’ house.

“Steadman Adams and Kwesi Adams have both been charged for the offences of possession of cannabis and possession of cannabis with intent to supply,” said a statement from the Royal St Christopher and Nevis Police Force.

“Steadman Adams will be given an additional charge of cultivation as 257 plants were found on his roof.

“They were being grown in makeshift pots.”

Another person, who lives in the same building as Kwesi Adams, was also arrested and is in police custody.

Police have not named the third suspect in the drugs bust.
