Drugs with a possible street value of around $20,000 have been taken out of circulation thanks to the actions of an eagle eyed member of the public.
According to an RCIP press release, on Friday, a man walking in East End came across a package which looked like it contained drugs, and called the police.
Officers attended and found that the package did in fact contain about five pounds of ganja.
‘We would like to commend the man for his vigilance and his assistance in removing these drugs from circulation,’ said Chief Inspector Adrian Seales.
‘We are fighting hard against those that partake in the supply and consumption of drugs and we hope this goes to show that the community is also fighting back,’ he said.
The drugs have been sent for destruction, said the RCIP.
The find followed a recent drugs operation in East End which saw eight pounds of ganja – worth about $35,000 – being recovered and four men arrested.
