‘Sauce’ busted with foreign ganja and ammo
Ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) on Friday arrested Rohan ‘Sauce’ Rambarran of Eccles Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara in connection with the discovery of cannabis and ammunition.
A press release from CANU noted that its ranks conducted an operation in Eccles when they intercepted a motor vehicle driven by Rambarran.
A search of the vehicle revealed five large bales wrapped with black plastic, containing 250 brick-like parcels suspected to be cannabis. A further search was conducted at the residence which led to the discovery of seven 9mm live rounds of ammunition in a magazine.
Rambarran was arrested and escorted to CANU’s Headquarters along with the ammunition and cannabis which was tested and determined to be foreign marijuana known as “Creepy.”
According to CANU, in December 2009, Rambarran, along with four others were convicted for the importation, possession and trafficking of 91.3 kilos of cannabis and 119.4 kilos of cocaine which were concealed in logs discovered on 29th November 2005.
Rambarran was sentenced concurrently to 25 years for trafficking cannabis and 30 years for trafficking cocaine. On August 29, 2019, the Barbados Court of Appeal ordered the release of Rambarran on time served, and he was subsequently deported to Guyana.
