The Customs Anti Narcotics Unit has launched a probe into the discovery of 7.5 pounds of marijuana in One Mile, Linden.
In statement, CANU said its agents were conducting an operation in the community this morning when a man was seen carrying a tub with a number of bulky parcels. The man abandoned the items and ran after spotting the CANU ranks.
CANU said its agents found three large bulky parcels, and a check of the contents revealed the 7.5 pounds of marijuana which carries a street value of $1 million, according to CANU.
