A convicted prisoner was on Tuesday found with one thousand four hundred and seventy-two grams of suspected cannabis in the Mazaruni Prison compound, police have reported.
The prisoner is being processed for court. According to police about 07:45h a prison officer was patrolling the inner perimeter of the penitentiary when he observed the suspicious behaviour of the prisoner who was in possession of a plastic bucket. The convict on seeing the officer made a dash behind the prison’s chapel but was immediately pursued, apprehended and a search of the bucket revealed the prohibited substance.
