Cops busted with narcotics, ammo during roadblock

Two Police Constables are in hot water after they were arrested in the wee hours of Monday with a quantity of ganja and cocaine as well as several rounds of ammunition during a roadblock exercise at Cove and John, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

The narcotics and ammunition found during the search

Based on reports received, at about 2:30h, a motor car bearing registration number PAB 7863 pulled up at the roadblock. A 32-year-old mason of Vigilance, ECD, was the driver, with Police Constable Albert Beresford, who is stationed at the Clonbrook Police Outpost, and Police Constable Julius Cambridge, stationed at the Cane Grove Police Station, as passengers.
However, the policemen who were conducting the exercise observed that their colleagues in the car were acting in a suspicious manner. As such, they requested to search the car during which one bag containing ganja and another with cocaine were found.
The cocaine, when weighed, amounted to 170 grams, while the ganja weighed 9.4kg.
A further search carried out in the motor car resulted in the discovery of rounds of ammunition.
In addition, two .38, two .40 and 11 .9mm rounds of ammunition were also discovered. The two cops and the driver were arrested and are assisting with investigations.
