The incident happened between Friday and Saturday. No arrests or recoveries have been made.

A total of seven men and one woman were also arrested over the weekend in several regions of the country for possession of and/or dealing in drugs and illicit goods such as mandrax tablets, cannabis and imported whiskey.
