Deputy Superintendent of Police Lloyd Bailey at the
Portmore Station packing seized ganja valued about $4 million.
The Portmore police in St Catherine this morning seized more than 400 pounds of compressed ganja valued at approximately $4 million.
But no one has been caught.
The police say about 3 o’clock, they were on patrol along Municipal Boulevard when a truck driving with one headlight was stopped.
The police say the truck accelerated and the occupants started throwing bags from the moving vehicle.
They say they gave chase however; the truck eluded them in the Grange Lane area.
When the packages were retrieved 75 packages of ganja weighing about 400 pounds were found.
The Trans-National Crime and Narcotic Division have also started a probe in the matter.
