Members of the Drug Squad of the Royal Grenada Police Force have managed to prevent a reasonable quantity of marijuana from making its way onto the streets of St. George’s.
The lawmen last week confiscated nine pounds of cured marijuana, and in the process seized a Noah Vehicle and a fishing boat.
Two men – Richard Roche of Lowthers Lane, St. George’s and Glenroy McIntosh of Carriacou – have been charged with drug possession and trafficking in connection with the operation carried out by the Drug Squad.
THE NEW TODAY Newspaper was reliably informed that during a police operation, the illegal drugs were found in the Noah that was being driven by Roche at Cherry Hill, St. George’s.
In that same operation, the boat which allegedly transported the marijuana from Carriacou was spotted in the area by law enforcement officials.
The boat, captained by McIntosh, was subsequently found in the waters off the Kirani James Boulevard in the Lagoon area.
It is believed the substance was dropped off on a beach in Grand Mal, St. George’s, in the vicinity of Sunset Inn.
Both men who are being represented by former Tourism Minister Peter David are now on bail.
