Agents of the Custom Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) are on the hunt for a taxi driver identified as Anthony Carmichael who reportedly abandoned his motorcar on Sheriff Street with more than 100 pounds of compressed marijuana on Monday morning.
Based on reports received, the motorcar bearing registration number PKK 1609 originated from New Amsterdam with wrapped packages of marijuana in the back seat and trunk of the vehicle.
It was reported that the CANU ranks were tracking the vehicle as it made its rounds around the city.
The driver however, reportedly realizing that he was being monitored, drove to Sheriff Street where he parked the car outside Royal Castle and fled the scene before the drug enforcement officers arrived.
The agents were left amazed at the quantity of marijuana and questioned the possibility of the driver passing several road blocks in Berbice without being caught.
Investigations are ongoing.
