Corentyne man busted with cocaine

Agents of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) arrested 46-year-old Mohan Ramcharran of Number 77 Village, Corentyne, Berbice (Region Six: East Berbice-Corentyne) on Monday after busting him with over 163 grams of cocaine in his possession during an operation at Canal Dam.
During that operation, ranks noticed Ramcharran riding a bicycle, but upon seeing the ranks, he threw a plastic bag into a clump of bushes. This prompted the ranks to apprehend the suspect and retrieve the bag. A search of its contents resulted in the discovery of a white substance suspected to be cocaine.

The suspect then led the law enforcement officials to his home, where they discovered an additional quantity of suspected cocaine.
Ramcharran and the substance was taken to the CANU Headquarters, where a test confirmed the substance to be cocaine. When weighed, it amounted to 163.4 grams. Investigations are ongoing.
Last Tuesday, along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway, CANU ranks intercepted and arrested two persons who were carrying a quantity of foreign ganja, popularly known as “poppy”.
A surveillance operation was conducted near the Linden Bus Park in Georgetown, and based on initial information, two individuals were observed entering a motor vehicle. The illegal substance unearthed was in the vehicle. The drug enforcement officers followed the vehicle out of Georgetown, down the East Bank Demerara corridor, and onto the Linden-Soesdyke Highway, where the vehicle was eventually intercepted and a search was conducted on its occupants.
During that search, a brick-like object suspected to be narcotics was discovered concealed in the vehicle.
The men were taken to the CANU Headquarters, where the substance was weighed, and amounted to 1.2kg, with a street value of more than $1 million. (G9)
