An operation by the narcotics branch of the Police Force at De Veldt in the Berbice River has unearthed 10 marijuana fields.

In a statement, the Police Force said the operation started at 4 o’clock this morning and ended at three this afternoon. During the 11-hour operation, a total of ten marijuana fields with over 200,000 marijuana plants were destroyed.

The Police said five camps were also discovered along with a drying area. In one of the camps, the ranks discovered 2,500 pounds of dried marijuana.

A search in a nearby area unearthed a 12-gauge shotgun along with 49 live 12 gauge cartridges.

They also discovered a nursery with more than 200,000 seedlings.

The estimated weight of the dried and eradicated cannabis is just over 741,000 pounds.

The Police said an estimated value stands at several billions of dollars.

The suspected cannabis and camps were destroyed by fire. Firearm and ammunition along with a cellular phone found were taken into custody and lodged pending further investigation.

Its obvious this Google explanation don't have a faintest idea about Berbice.

De Veldt is an isolated farming community in the Berbice river and it has no relationship with the Corentyne river, many miles apart.  

Me thinks it was meant the location on the Berbice River to be opposite Crabwood Creek ,East to West .

Quite away from the mouth of the Berbice River ,boat will be needed to get there ,doesn't seem plausible there are connections to Henry's boys .

Word on the street here locally is those kids some how compromised the Venezuelan drug gang that migrate and  setup operation here.. Harish Singh also was taken out by the same gang.

The jungle trail used for a road is not maintained and a Youtube video showed a vehicle being carried on a barge, because they cannot drive on the road. There is no speed boat service due to few passengers, but people use their own outboard motor and their small  boats, to visit other families on the river and to New Amsterdam.
