A 31-year-old woman of Cornelia Ida, West Coast Demerara (WCD) was on Wednesday arrested following the discovery of 219.2 grams of cannabis hidden under a pile of wood in her yard.
Ranks led by a Superintendent of Police were conducting an operation in the area when they made contact with the woman, who was in her yard at the time. The ranks requested to carry out a search on the woman’s premises, and she consented.
The Police have said that a search of the house unearthed nothing of evidential value, but a further search in the yard, between a pile of wood alongside the house, revealed a bulky black plastic bag containing the ganja.
While being cautioned, the woman admitted to selling the suspected cannabis, saying to one of the ranks, “Officer, can I trust you? I does sell lil lil weed here. A boy does drop it, but me done deh in trouble, so me ain’t want put he in no trouble…”
The woman was arrested and escorted to the Leonora Police Station, where the cannabis was weighed and amounted to 219.2 grams.
The woman is presently in custody, pending charges.
