Police and drugs enforcement authorities accompanied by UN Security personnel have set ablaze a 421.9 Kilograms of narcotic substances in Whien Town, outside Monrovia.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Drugs Enforcement Agency and UN Security officers were present at the burning of the L$2,505,120.00 worth of marijuana (US$35,787.43) Wednesday, outside the capitol.
Police recently discovered and confiscated the huge marijuana quantity upon tip off by residents of Mount Barclay last Friday.
Police soaked the hail of narcotic substance with gas and fuel before inflaming it. DEA officers say the fuel would destroy and weaken any substance that is not completely burnt to ashes, thus making it un-useful.
Acting Police Director Chris Massaquoi, told reporters Tuesday the 421.9 Kilograms of marijuana was confiscated Friday, December 15, 2011, in an abandoned building in Mount Barclay. No suspect has been arrested.
Masaquoi however said investigations are ongoing, and commanded the gallant men and women of the LNP, who were involved in the exercise for their commitment and dedication.
