Marijuana trees with an estimated street value of $5 million TT dollars have been destroyed by officers of the Blanchisseuse and Maracas Bay Police Stations, during a marijuana eradication exercise in the Brasso Seco Paria district, on Friday.
The exercise was conducted between 2:30pm and 6:00pm, during which officers proceeded to a forested area, one hundred feet off the Brasso Seco Main Road.
There they discovered a make-shift camp constructed of bamboo, plastic and galvanize, along with five thousand fully grown marijuana trees and approximately two hundred seedlings in Styrofoam cups.
The trees, seedlings and camp were subsequently destroyed.
No arrest was made in connection with the find.
