As the Guyana Police Force (GPF) continues its drug eradication exercise throughout the country, ranks stationed in Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Upper Berbice) on Tuesday last destroyed more than two acres of ganja at 10 Miles Bosai Road, Linden.

Based on reports received, the more-than-five-hour operation resulted in the destruction of more than two acres of cannabis cultivation with close to 1800 plants measuring a foot to four feet in height.

Additionally, the ranks found 30 pounds of processed cannabis. As such, a grid location of the area was made and efforts are currently being made to trace the ownership of the land with a view of instituting criminal charges.
