Three persons were arrested Friday night by ranks from the Mabaruma Police Station, who acted on a tip off and searched a resort at Kumaka, Region One where they found 831 grams of marijuana and 20 grams of cocaine.

The Police ranks, at around 22:30hrs, went to Lorenzo and Deneve (L&D) Resort located at Kumaka, North West District, where a search was conducted in Room #4.

A statement from Police Headquarters noted that while searching, a black plastic bag with marijuana was found in a box containing several costumes.

Ramzan was immediately told of the allegation that she was in possession of narcotics. A further search was conducted in the washroom area, under the face sink, where Police found a plastic bag containing a quantity of creamish/whitish substance suspected to be cocaine.

Deneve was again told of the offence committed, and she said: “Those things belong to my boyfriend Roberto Miggins.”

Miggins, she claimed, was staying with her for a few days and she believed he was trying to ‘set her up’.

Police then searched Room #6, which Alister Peters occupies, but nothing unlawful was found.
