Two brothers from Tuschen New Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), were arrested on Thursday after allegedly being found with marijuana in their home.
Reports are that ranks acting on information received went to the location and made contact with 24-year-old Kevin De’cruz and 25-year-old Patrick De’cruz.
The duo was told of the information received, after which a search was carried out on the premises in their presence.
While searching in Kevin’s bedroom, one large transparent zip-lock plastic bag containing several smaller ziplock bags with suspected cannabis was found under his bed.
He was told of the offence committed and, under caution, said: “Is just a small portion, I can deal with that.”
A further search was carried out in the hall, where another transparent plastic bag containing suspected cannabis was found on the table. They were told of the offence committed, and Patrick replied: “Is me thing, is a lil thing.”
They were arrested and escorted to the Leonora Police Station along with the suspected cannabis. On arrival, the suspected cannabis was weighed and amounted to 67.8 grams.
