According to the constabulary's Corporate Communication's Unit (CCU), the accused, Johnothan Chung, otherwise called 'Chungy' of a Black River, St Elizabeth address, was arrested yesterday during an operation along Gazeland main road in the parish.

Chung, who was reportedly driving a Toyota Voxy motor vehicle, was signalled to stop during a police operation about 3:30 pm.

He complied and the vehicle was searched, resulting in the seizure of a plastic bag containing one pound of ganja and a Smith and Wesson Hi-Point pistol with nine rounds of ammunition, said CCU.

The ganja has an estimated street value of $5,000.
