An eleven-hour operation by ranks of the Guyana Police Force resulted in the destruction of about five acres of cannabis cultivation and three camps in the Berbice River on Saturday.
Police Headquarters revealed that there were about 3,300 plants ranging from six inches to six feet in height, with an average weight of 1660 kilograms.
One of the camps which was used to dry the prohibited plants was found with about 200 kilograms of processed cannabis.

No arrests were made but investigators are tracing the ownership of the land.
