CANU hunts three men after seizing ganja boat in Mahaicony
Officers of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) on Thursday seized a boat it says was used to transport narcotics on numerous occasions and are now looking for three men from the Canje bridge area in Berbice. The men have so far only been identified by the names Elvis, Matic and Jagan.
The boat was discovered on the Eastern side of the Mahaicony boat landing with 5.610 kg of cannabis onboard, CANU stated.
The seizure of the boat was a continuation of a previous operation conducted by CANU at Unity, East Coast Demerara, where officers and residents of the community saw the said boat delivering bulky bags at the foreshore.
Officers then intercepted the said bags and discovered cannabis.
Upon discovering the said boat, a surveillance operation, which lasted eight hours, was conducted to identify the owners/ operators of the said boat, but this was futile.
