4,600 grams of weed confiscated onboard bus

Over 3,800 grams of marijuana was confiscated from two passenger buses travelling to the city from the west by police on anti-drug operations that were conducted on Friday, April 25, on the George Price Highway.

Police said that at a checkpoint at about 10:30 Friday morning, they stopped and boarded a bus travelling to the city from the west and conducted a random search for drugs, guns or ammunition.

The search led to the discovery of a black bag under a seat, and inside the bag was marijuana which weighed 1,800 grams. No one was arrested.

Shortly after, at about 1:00 that afternoon, police officers stopped and boarded another passenger bus at the vehicle checkpoint on the George Price Highway, and again marijuana was found. Police said that they came across a school bag under a seat in the rear of the bus and when it was opened, they found that it was loaded with cannabis.

Again, police could not find out who placed the bag there.

The marijuana was weighed and it amounted to 2,800 grams.
