Officers of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) found several packages of cannabis, amounting to 57.6 kilogrammes (or 127 pounds), in the vicinity of Sea Dam, Crabwood Creek, Region Six (East Berbice- Corentyne) on Saturday.
A CANU release noted that this much cannabis has a street value of approximately $17 million.
The narcotics were taken to CANU’s Skeldon Office in Region Six were they were tested and weighed. No one has, however, been arrested.
