Officers from the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) discovered a parcel containing four pounds marijuana in an empty houselot at Lethem, Region Nine (Upper Takutu- Upper Essequibo).
A release from CANU noted that an operation was conducted at Lot 85 Lethem on Saturday, but no narcotics were discovered there.
A subsequent search was, however, conducted at the empty neighbouring house lot which led to the discovery of several parcels of suspected cannabis.
The suspected narcotics were escorted to CANU’s Office in Lethem, where it tested positive for cannabis with a total weight of approximately 1.81 kilograms (approximately four pounds).
Investigations are ongoing.
