Three men arrested for drug-related offenses in George Town

Three men were arrested after police spotted them acting suspiciously and smelt a strong scent of ganja coming from their direction.

Police stopped and searched the three men and the vehicle they were travelling in, at a parking lot off Shedden Road, George Town. 

Small portions of ganja were found on two of the men at the location. Police asked about the vehicle they were stood next to and a search of the vehicle was also conducted under the Misuse of Drugs Law.

Several packets of ganja as well as drug paraphernalia were found inside the vehicle.

Two of the men, aged 34 and 21 from West Bay, were arrested on suspicion of possession and consumption of ganja, and the owner of the vehicle - a 35-year-old-man of East End who was also present - was arrested on suspicion of possession of ganja with intent to supply and other related offense.

The matter is currently under investigation.
