A woman and the driver of a car that was nabbed with just over 25 pounds of marijuana, were among five persons arrested on the Aurora Public Road in Essequibo, this morning. Investigators have not released the names of any of those arrested.
The bust was made just after 8 o’ clock this morning as the Police, acting on information, stopped and searched the taxi.
The investigating ranks found 25 taped parcels of the marijuana in a carton box in the car. The five occupants were immediately arrested and taken in for questioning.
Charges are expected to be filed before the end of the week.
