A Berbice resident is now in the custody of Police after he was on Saturday busted with a large quantity of cannabis (ganja).
The 23-year-old, of Sheet Anchor Village, East Canje, Berbice, was caught with the illegal substance around 12:45h.
INews understands that the unemployed man was at the time of the discovery in Fort Wellington, West Coast Berbice (ECD) and was said to be heading to Georgetown.

It was then that the 1395 grams of cannabis was found in a haversack that the accused was carrying.
As such, he was arrested and taken to a Police Station where he was later charged with the offence.
He is currently being processed for court.
