Contraband dasheen stopped by cops


Already dealing with a wave of illegal immigrants, guns, ammunition, wildlife and sheep, police are apparently now dealing with smuggled food.

On Sunday, Agriculture Minister Clarence Rambharat posted images of a pirogue and an estimated 8,000 pounds of ground provision that he said was confiscated by the police in Moruga.

The Minister stated that the police intercepted the illegal shipment of dasheen which originated in Venezuela.

Two people have been arrested.
