Guyana: The police officers of Guyana with the Guyana’s Customs Anti Narcotic Unit – CANU have seized around 80 kilograms of cannabis expected to be worth of 10 million Guyana dollars that is – $58,000

This cannabis was seized after a secret surveillance of four days.

During the surveillance that took place this week in the Goat Dam of Line Path, Corentyne, the police officers were holding an eye out for the traffickers suspected of transporting several bags of narcotics.

The Line Path area is divided and has boundaries on its foreshore, Corentyne River and back dam. Swamps of the coastal plain are restrained from interfering into croplands by a line of back-dams.

After nearly two hours of the monitoring, the police officers marked that three people were appearing from the nearby cane field and were walking towards them. The police identified them and shouted at the suspects to stand still, the three opted to escape back into the area.

As per the reports of CANU, “The police officers did not attempt the individuals due to a canal separating the dam from the cane field area but instead, they started searching the area and soon noticed that a total of 10 bulky parcels were wrapped in transparent plastic.”

The police officers did more closer examination, and it appeared that all the packages were carrying weed. The drugs were then seized by the officers and were taken for further processing.

According to the police officers, the parcels were to be transported to Suriname for further resale. The Guyana Times Reported a crash-landed near the Corentyne River, and 450 kilograms of cocaine was found on board in the month of May 2021.

According to the CANU report, at the time, it appeared that the aircraft was also travelling to Suriname. As for cannabis, a regular stop-and-search exercise at a police checkpoint in Guyana also unveiled a cooler carrying 11 frozen chickens which were stuffed with weed.
