The police arrested a 36-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman for possession of approximately $2 million worth of marijuana in Longdenville.

At about 2.30 am the Arouca CID and the Arouca task force arrived at a Longdenville apartment. 

The couple refused to open the door, so they were forced to break the door down. 

When they entered the apartment, they found more than 100 blocks of compressed high grade marijuana which weighed approximately 150 lbs in boxes in a bedroom. The police estimate that the haul was worth approximately $2 million. 

They arrested a 36-year old man from Enterprise, Chaguanas and a 19-year-old woman from St James.

Investigations continue.
