Two more arrested in ganja bust

Two other men have been arrested in connection with the recent police seizure of 196 pounds of ganja, bringing the total number of arrests to four.

A 35-year-old man was detained on suspicion of importation of ganja and possession of ganja with intent to supply and another man, believed to have captained the canoe which was seized, was also arrested.

The drugs were found by officers from the Drugs Task Force who carried out a raid on Thursday, June 25.

Two men were arrested at the George Town address during the operation; the two other men were arrested this week. All four have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

As part of the enquiry, officers confiscated a 32-foot canoe fitted with a 1 x 65 horse power engine. The vessel was found abandoned in the water in the Prospect area. It has been seized and will be forensically examined.
