Reports are that about 9:30 p.m., a police team comprising of members of the Narcotics Division and the Westmoreland Division, assisted by members of the JDF, attempted to intercept a minivan in the area.
The occupants of the vehicle reportedly fired upon the team and discarded packages as they attempted to flee.
The vehicle was eventually intercepted and two men—who were later confirmed to be members of the Jamaica Defence Force—were arrested. The ganja and the vehicle the men were travelling in were seized.
The vehicle is the property of the Jamaica Defence Force.
The investigation continues.
