Upon hearing that, one of the men threw a grey knapsack and ran from the officers but he was quickly captured and taken to retrieve the bag, which contained cannabis amounting to 1,437 grams or over three pounds. The second man was able to make good his escape.

As a result of the cannabis found, 25-year-old Ismael Jimenez of the Hill of Promise area in Benque Viejo Town was arrested and charged for the offense of “Drug Trafficking”.
