Police ranks in Region Three on Friday seized 2239.2 grams of cannabis and 41.9 grams of cocaine in a house located at Buck Hall, Essequibo Island. An identifiable male suspect, who was seen in the house by the ranks, managed to escape by running into some thick vegetation in the area.

The ranks, led by an Assistant Superintendent and acting information received, went to the area, where they conducted a search on a wooden one-storey house.

During the search, the ranks found a bulky plastic bag containing five transparent bags of cannabis seeds, leaves, and stems. The ranks also found several ziploc bags that contained cocaine.

A quantity of Bambo, empty ziploc bags, three cellular phones, one GPS without battery, and one National Identification card (name withheld) were also found in the house.

The narcotics and items found were taken to the Parika Police Station. Samples were taken from each of the narcotics parcels and placed into separate evidence bags that were sealed, marked, and lodged.

The suspect is currently being sought as investigations continue.
