Customs officials this morning found a large quantity of marijuana stashed in a container full of cars at the John Fernandes Terminal on the Back Road.
Numerous officials confirmed the bust and said that customs officials and CANU ranks were still on the ground investigating.
The amount so far recovered is 2200 pounds.
The container which came to Guyana from Jamaica about a month ago was only opened today, a source said.
The discovery comes just a few days after Jamaica’s Customs Commissioner Richard Reese told the Jamaica Gleaner that an upsurge in ganja shipments to Guyana has been seen.
