Yesterday, officers went Orange Grove Road in the vicinity of the Grounds, where they found a multi-coloured knapsack containing the drug.
Meanwhile in a separate incident earlier that day, the same team of officers arrested a 45 year old Rio Claro man for marijuana possession.
The officers stopped and searched a gold Mazda BT-50 pickup truck at Bamboo #3 Boulevard.
They found approximately one kilogram of the drug in a brown plastic packet and subsequently arrested the driver.
The total value of the drugs seized is $72,000.
