Men Charged Following Recovery of Large Quantity of Ganja

On Saturday, 23 September, officers in George Town observed two men who appeared to be behaving suspiciously outside an abandoned building on Rock Hole Road. Upon speaking with the men, the officers detected the strong scent of ganja coming from the building. Officers conducted a search of the building under the Misuse of Drugs Act and recovered several bags containing an estimated 100lbs of suspected ganja.

The men were taken into custody on suspicion of drug offenses, and officers subsequently determined that they had recently arrived on island illegally.

The two men, ages 35 and 57, both Jamaican nationals, have since been formally charged with Importation of Ganja, Possession of Ganja, Possession of Ganja with Intent to Supply, and Illegal Landing.

They appeared in court today, 26 September.
