Police said they held the cousins aged 20 and 36 years during an operation at about 12:30 Friday morning.
“Ranks acting on information received went to the duo Second Street, Turkeyen Apartment and conducted a search which unearthed twenty-six taped parcels in a bag, hidden in a plastic barrel, in one of the rooms, weighing almost forty-four kilograms,” the Guyana Police Force said in a statement.
Investigators were likely to charge the detainees and pass them through court later Friday.
