Police are seeking the driver of a red Honda Step Wagon after he allegedly fled his vehicle, leaving behind more than US$1 million worth of ganja.

It was reported that around 8:30 pm, a vehicle travelling from the direction of Clarendon and heading towards Kingston, was signalled to stop by the police while it approached the Portmore exit.

The driver of the vehicle disobeyed the police's instructions and sped away.

During a pursuit operation, the driver reportedly abandoned the vehicle along the roadway near the Ackee Walk filter road and escaped on foot in the nearby mangroves.

A search of the vehicle revealed over 1,100 pounds of compressed ganja with a street value of approximately US$1.4 million.

Investigators from the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Narcotics Division are asking the driver of the vehicle to turn himself in.
