“The officers did not pursue the people because a canal separated the dam from the sugar cane field,” reports CANU.

Instead, they began searching the area and soon noticed 10 bulky packages wrapped in clear plastic. Upon closer inspection, it was found that the packs contained grass. The drugs were confiscated and taken to be processed.

The police assume that the packages should be transported to Suriname for resale.

In May, the Guyana Times reported that a plane crashed near the Corentyne River and 450 kilograms of cocaine were found on board. CANU reported at the time that the plane appeared to be flying to Suriname as well.

As for cannabis, a routine search at a police checkpoint in Guyana revealed a cool box containing 11 frozen chickens filled with grass.
