The ganja found during the raid
Rawle Farrell

Rawle Farrell, 32, of the Dazzle Housing Scheme, Demerara East Coast (ECD), wanted by the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), surrendered for narcotics trafficking on Monday.
Based on reports received, on Monday March 29, 2021, CANU agents came up at the man’s home to conduct a search, but as officers made their way to the house, he escaped.
In an attempt to apprehend him, the officers reported pursuing, but their efforts were futile. However, a search was conducted on the Farrells’ home, when several Ziplock plastic bags were found along with other bulky parcels with the suspected cannabis. Subsequently, the illegal substance was weighed to 1.5 kilograms.
In that regard, CANU issued a bulletin it wanted to arrest. Days after the bulletin was published, Farrell, along with his mother, other relatives and his attorney, introduced themselves at CANU Headquarters, where he turned himself in.
He was arrested and charged for the crime. He is expected to make his court appearance today at Cove and John Magistrates Court.
