The exercise was led by two senior officers of the Police Narcotics Branch and lasted more than 13 hours.
During the exercise, the ranks discovered three cannabis farms that measured about 15 acres and contained about 600,000 ganja plants ranging from six inches to five feet high. In addition, six change camps were discovered.
Apparently, there were three men in the camps who ran to the bushes and escaped seeing the Police.

In addition, a quantity of cannabis was found wrapped in transparent plastic bags. When the illegal substance was weighed, it totaled 40 lbs.
The camps and ganja plants were destroyed by fire. No one was arrested.
Police are continuing their investigations.
