Man busted with parcels of foreign ganja worth $8.4M
Romario Stoll, a resident of the Charity Housing Scheme on the Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon- Supenaam) was nabbed with 60 parcels of foreign marijuana.
A release from the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) noted that the marijuana found has a street value of about $8.4 million.
CANU Officers were conducting an operation on Tuesday at Walton Hall on the Essequibo Coast when they intercepted a vehicle driven by Stoll. When the ranks searched the vehicle, they found 40 brick-like parcels wrapped with brown scotch tape. Inside those parcels were leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis.
The ranks then searched Stoll’s Charity house and found an additional 20 brick-like parcels also containing a quantity of leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis.
Stoll was arrested and escorted to CANU’s Headquarters along with the suspected cannabis.
CANU said the narcotic found in the motor vehicle was tested and determined to be foreign marijuana known as “creepy”. It was weighed and amounted to 23.4 kilogrammes. Investigations are ongoing.
