$1.2m in ganja destroyed after raid in Chag
More than $1.2 million worth of marijuana was destroyed in Chaguaramas yesterday during a joint operation between security personnel of the Chaguaramas Development Authority (CDA) and the Organised Crime, Narcotics and Firearms Bureau (OCNFB). There were no arrests. Officers, however, said investigations were continuing. CDA personnel said it was as a result of on-going intelligence that estate and police officers went into an area on Guave Road, off Tucker Valley Road, and found hundreds of fully-grown marijuana trees and seedlings. Among those on the exercise were CDA officers Samaroo, Dolland. Dowlat and Jeetooah, accompanied by Cpl Darren Baptiste and others from the OCNFB.
The exercise began at about 8 am and ended shortly after noon. The officers said although there were no arrests they were following on certain leads. Responding to yesterday’s find, former police commissioner, Everald Snaggs, now head of security of CDA, said his officers were moving to keep a safer environment in the western peninsular. He said patrols in Chaguaramas had been beefed up and would continue. Snaggs also commended the officers involved in yesterday’s operation.
