An illegal airstrip, a chainsaw and a few fuel drums are some of the things discovered in the hinterland by the Guyana Defence Force during a patrol.
According to a statement from the GDF, ranks were conducting a reconnaissance mission five kilometers west of Santa Fe just outside of Lethem this morning when they made the discovery.
Several dug out trenches were also discovered at the location as well as 12 abandoned camps, an axe and a quarter drum of aviation fuel.
Authorities are conducting a thorough investigation in the findings.
The GDF said the alleged find represents the challenges faced by the security forces in the hinterland. Over the past few years several illegal aircrafts were seizes by the State.
