In what can be described as the biggest drugs seizure for the year, ranks of the Customs and Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) yesterday confiscated large quantities of Jamaican marijuana (high grade ‘weed’), cocaine and cash during an operation in the Golden Grove/Diamond, East Bank Demerara area.
Two persons have since been arrested.
According to a CANU press release officers first discovered 1,227 kilogrammes (kg) or 1.2 tons (2,690 pounds) of Jamaica marijuana at a home and one person was taken into custody. The release said that during the search of another location in the same vicinity, officers searched another home and found 4.2 kilogrammes (9.2 pounds) of cocaine and over $1 million in cash. Another person was taken into custody in connection with the incident.
