The suspects were arrested at dawn last Saturday at a checkpoint at Sokode-Lokoe, near Ho after the police had a tip-off that the suspects were trying to smuggle the substance to Togo.
The three are currently in police custody at the Volta Regional Police headquarters for interrogation.
The Volta Regional Crime Officer, Chief Superintendent Kofi Abraham, confirmed the incident but declined to give any details because he said investigations had just begun to gather more information on the matter.
