Guyanese Promoter nabbed in New York Cocaine Bust
Two more Guyanese were nabbed just after one of them moved off from the JFK airport area after ICE agents discovered cocaine in the rails of one of individuals. One of the two men appeared before the Brooklyn Federal court on Monday afternoon on narcotics related charges.
Thirty eight year old Danvor Griffith was granted a two hundred thousand US dollar bail package providing his mother signed over her house to the US government by early Tuesday morning.
The Federal agents who were reportedly watching the activities of Griffith co-defendant, young Guyanese Businessman and promoter Ghalee Khan had tracked Khan as he traveled from Trinidad to the United States.
According to official records the thirty one year old Ghalee Khan left Guyana on November first but did not arrive in New York until the second. Because the Feds had their eyes on him, he was allowed to leave the airport to make the delivery of the drugs that were stashed in the rails and handles of a suitcase.
It was at Lefferts and Liberty Avenue that he and the co-defendant Griffith were arrested.
Capitol News understands that two events may have led the local and overseas law enforcement to focus on defendants. The first was a major shipment of luxury items within the past two weeks and the arrest and conviction of an associate in Georgetown. What is not very clear is how one of the defendants, who was on the police radar for the associate’s incident was able to get past immigration unless of course it was planned that way.
