Two men who police said are known to them are being sought following the discovery of 14.497 kilograms (32 pounds) of cannabis at Parker Street, Providence, East Bank Demerara on Wednesday.
A police statement noted that ranks on motorcycles were in the area when they observed the duo standing at the koker with a bulky black plastic bag each in their hands.
The men, upon seeing the police, started to act in a suspicious manner.
This led the ranks to proceed in their direction but the duo threw the bags into a nearby clump of bushes and escaped on foot.
The ranks retrieved the bags and when examined, they observed the contents to be several blue and white and pink and white transparent plastic bags with cannabis.
The narcotics were taken to the Golden Grove Police Station where it was weighed and it amounted to 14.497 kilograms. The investigation is ongoing.
