Three members of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association delegation to Sunday's international friendly football match against Jamaica have been detained at the Norman Manley International Airport on drug charges.

The members, believed to be two equipment managers and a coach were prevented from boarding their flight back to Antigua at around 2:15 this afternoon after marijuana was allegedly found in their bags.

They have since been taken to the Narcotics Police Division for processing, while the team's manager is still being interrogated.
