Two men of Tuschen New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo, were arrested by Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit agents  after they were allegedly found with 42 kilogrammes of marijuana.

The anti-drug agency said 39-year old Shafeek Latif and 35-year old Naresh Totaram were arrested at Parika Public Road East Bank Essequibo on October 15 during an early morning search.

CANU said both men were in a Toyota Corolla Spacio motor car “when it was interdicted by the ranks with two bulky salt bags containing the suspected narcotic in the back seat”.
