Two persons from the village of Enterprise Gardens on the East Coast of Demerara are in Police custody after they were busted with a total of 13 pounds of marijuana in their possession.
The two who are both 35-year-old were arrested on Thursday night during a Police operation that was triggered by a tip-off.
The Police in a statement said the man and woman were held for questioning after two parcels of marijuana were found in a Honda CRV that they were seated in while it was parked at the side of the road in Enterprise Gardens.
The Police said the parcels contained marijuana leaves, seeds, and stems.
A later search by the Police at the home of one of the suspects uncovered another parcel of marjuana in a bedroom.
The suspects were told of the drug trafficking offence and remain in custody. Charges are likely to be filed against them in the new week.
