Two men were on Tuesday arrested by agents of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) after they were reportedly intercepted with a quantity of cocaine and cannabis along Lance Gibbs Street and Vlissengen Road, Georgetown.
Twenty-five-year-old Daquan Wills of Meadow Brook Drive, Georgetown, and Joel Fung-A-Fat, 39, of Forshaw Street, Georgetown, were reportedly travelling in a motor car, PVV 6706, which was under CANU surveillance.
However, as CANU ranks attempted to intercept the vehicle, the driver sped away. As such, agents gave chase and the vehicle was eventually intercepted at Lance Gibbs Street and Vlissengen Road, Georgetown.
During the chase, the ranks observed a cocaine brick being tossed from the vehicle which was subsequently retrieved and when weighed amounted to 1.054 kilograms.
Upon their arrest, the two suspects reportedly led CANU ranks to an abandoned range house at Stone Avenue Campbellville, Georgetown, where another brick of cocaine and a bag containing a quantity of cannabis were discovered.
The cocaine retrieved at Stone Avenue amounted to 1.048 kilograms while the cannabis weighed 17.956 kilograms. The two men along with the cocaine and cannabis were escorted to CANU headquarters.
The duo is expected to be charged shortly.
