GEORGETOWN – A husband and wife were among three persons who were arrested early Saturday morning arrested in connection with the discovery of three trunk loads of marijuana, well-placed sources said.

After the discovery of the narcotic, the three Mazda cars were towed away by police as part of the ongoing probe. The husband is an auto dealer who buys and rents cars.

Guyana Police Force spokesman, Ivelaw Whittaker later said 78 kilogrammes of compressed marijuana were concealed in the trunks of the vehicles. The raid, he said, was part of a cordon and search operation in Georgetown.

“One man and three women were arrested and are in police custody assisting with the investigations,” Whittaker added.

The flourishing marijuana cultivation and trade have found a lucrative market in Guyana’s goldfields where thousands of persons have been flocking in search the precious metal.

Several persons have been nabbed with various amounts of marijuana that they had hoped to place on flights to the interior. (Demerara Waves)
