Millions of dollars worth of compressed ganja was seized on the Caramel Road in Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth on Saturday evening, police have revealed.

Reports received from the Transnational Crime and Narcotics Division are that about 8:30 p.m., a team of officers was conducting an operation in the area, during which the driver of a Toyota Townace was signalled to stop.

Police said the driver complied, and during a subsequent search of the vehicle, the ganja, weighing approximately 1,000 pounds, was seized. The drug would have fetched an estimated J$5 million on the nation's streets.

The driver and another man who was in the motor vehicle were arrested. Their identities are being withheld at this time.
