An early morning patrol in the Benque Viejo area netted cannabis amounting to fifty-five and a half pounds. On Sunday morning Benque Police were on mobile patrol in the Lomas Del Rodeo area when a pickup truck made a sudden stop and two men exited. One of men, who had a red sack in his hands, ran into the bushes while the other ran in the opposite direction. After a police pursuit, twenty-four year old Anthony Thomas Welcome was apprehended. Welcome later led police to the area where he had discarded the red sack and a search of the bag led to the discovery of three taped black plastic bags containing cannabis. A further search of the vehicle also led to the discovery of three plastic bags also wrapped in brown tape containing cannabis.
