Around 1:10pm Tuesday, July 10th police officers responded to a reported incident at the L.F. Wade International Airport.

It appears that an arriving passenger, believed to be a 37 year old visitor to the island, fled on foot from the local Customs area for arriving passengers inside the airport.

Police officers pursued the individual and apprehended him a short time later on the Causeway.

He remains in police custody at this time – on suspicion of drug importation – pending further inquiries.
