Over 600 pounds of ganja and more than 120 assorted rounds of ammunition were seized by the Marine police in Portland Cottage, Clarendon at the start of the weekend.

Four firearms, comprising two shot guns - a Glock 40 pistol and a Birsa 9-millimetre pistol, were also found.

The drugs, weapons and ammunition, along with three cellular phones, were recovered from a 28-foot canoe in mangroves.

No one was arrested in connection with the seizure.

In a separate incident, two people were arrested in connection with the seizure of several rounds of ammunition discovered in the Ocho Rios Bus Park in St Ann yesterday.

The police's Corporate Communications Unit reports that six shotgun rounds and two .45 rounds were recovered from a vendor's stall located in the bus park.
