Within the space of a week, law-enforcement officers have executed another successful drug-interdiction operation at the V.C. Bird International Airport Fed-Ex Storage Shed.

This exercise was conducted on August 4, at about 5:30 p.m., and involved the Customs Enforcement Unit.

The illegal substance reportedly weighs 15 pounds and carries a street value of $90,000.

The box and its contents were transported to the Police Headquarters pending further investigations.
