A high speed chase between ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) and two (2) men inside of a motor vehicle (#PVV 6706) led to the discovery of bricks of cocaine along with bulky parcels of “ganja” at two (2) locations in the capital city on Tuesday (yesterday).
The men, identified as Daquan Wills, 25, of Meadow Brook Drive, Georgetown, and Joel Fung-A-Fat, 39, of Foreshaw Street, Georgetown, and also has a residence in the United States, were nabbed at Lance Gibbs Street and Vlissengen Road, Georgetown, despite their efforts to flee from the CANU ranks.
According to a press statement from the CANU, its ranks were conducting an operation on Tuesday (yesterday) afternoon where several targets, including a maroon Nissan Juke (#PVV 6706), were under surveillance.
“When Ranks attempted to interdict the said vehicle, it sped away and CANU gave chase and intercepted same at Lance Gibbs Street and Vlissengen Road Georgetown.
