Four arrested with ‘kush’ worth $2.8M
The Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) on Thursday arrested four men who were found with almost four pounds of marijuana worth some $2.8 million.
Those arrested are Erwin Chappelle, 24; Doodnauth Bhagwandin, 35; Kevin Ramgoolam, 27 and Mark Barton, 29.
According to a statement from CANU, the men were intercepted in a motorcar along Middle Street, Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara.
A subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of four parcels of marijuana.
This type of cannabis is known as ‘kush’ which is suspected to have been imported into Guyana from North America, CANU stated.
