CANU seizes over $1M worth of ‘foreign’ marijuana


Two persons are in the custody of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) after they were reportedly caught with 2.64 lbs of marijuana on the Soesdyke-Linden Highway on Tuesday.

A press release from CANU noted that based on the information provided, CANU officers conducted a surveillance operation near the Linden bus park during which they identified two individuals entering a motor vehicle.

The CANU ranks then followed the vehicle out of town, down the east bank corridor, and onto the Soesdyke Highway. Following that, the vehicle was stopped and a search of the vehicle and its occupants was conducted during which a brick-like object suspected of containing narcotics was discovered concealed in the vehicle.

The driver and occupants of the vehicle, as well as the brick-like object, were escorted to CANU headquarters, where it was tested, weighed and was determined to be foreign marijuana, commonly known as “poppy.”

CANU said the street value of the marijuana is more than G$1,000,000.
