A 23-year-old woman was arrested yesterday after she was caught trying to pass ganja stashed in papayas into the New Amsterdam Prison.

Police say that the woman visited the facility around 14:30hrs to take food for an inmate, and during the search, five bulky parcels wrapped with transparent plastic containing a quantity of cannabis leaves, seeds and stems were found hidden in two papayas.

The matter was reported to the Police at Central Police Station and the narcotic was handed over.

The suspect was told of the offence committed, cautioned, and arrested.

The cannabis was weighed in her presence and it amounted to 192 grams.
