A Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) led operation on Tuesday morning has resulted in several persons- one of whom has been identified as a nightclub owner- being taken into police custody for possession of narcotics.
This is according to Police “A” Division Commander, Leslie James on Tuesday via a telephone interview with INews.
At the time of the enquiry, James was unable to ascertain the exact number of persons who are presently being interrogated, as well as the amount of cannabis unearthed.
However, another senior police officer has confirmed that approximately 19 kilos of marijuana were unearthed within the Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown area.
Investigations are ongoing.
