An intelligence-led operation, commanded by a Senior Police Officer, resulted in the interception of a white Toyota Fielder Wagon at Samatta Point, Grove, East Bank Demerara about 09:30hrs with five men.

Police said that the men are ages 27, 28, 29, 30 and 33 and are all residing on the East Bank of Demerara.
