Police said members of the Suppressing Criminal Activity Threatened Society (SCATS) yesterday, based on information received, went to a bushy area along 2nd Avenue Greens, where a number of marijuana fields were discovered ranging from seedlings to 18ft in height.
The lawmen disclosed that assistance was rendered from the Servility patrol and B’town Divisional patrol resulting in the removal of 3,257 plants. Due to failing light the eradication process was stopped.
