A Marijuana Field worth five million dollars is destroyed in Brasso Seco.
The field was destroyed by officers of the Blanchisseuse and Maracas Bay Police Stations, during a marijuana eradication exercise in the Brasso Seco Paria district, on Friday 3rd August 2018.
The exercise, spearheaded by Supt. (Ag.) Nazrudeen Pragg and Sgt. Leftren Taylor, was conducted between 2:30 pm and 6:00 pm, during which officers proceeded to a forested area, 100 feet off the Brasso Seco Main Road.
There they discovered a make-shift camp constructed of bamboo, plastic and galvanize, along with 5000 fully grown marijuana trees and approximately 200 seedlings in Styrofoam cups.
The trees, seedlings and camp were subsequently destroyed. No arrest was made.
