A 35-year-old man was detained on suspicion of importation of ganja and possession of ganja with intent to supply, while the charges that the suspected captain has been arrested for are unknown. The drugs were found by officers from the Drugs Task Force who carried out a raid on Thursday, 25 June.

Two men were arrested at the George Town address during the operation. All four men arrested in connection with ganja haul have been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
