100 Million Guyana dollars worth of Cocaine in abandoned suitcase at JFK leads to arrest of 25 year old Queens’ Woman.

Another major investigation is underway at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport-CJIA and at the law enforcement agencies in Guyana as to how over 100 million Guyana dollars (500,000 USD) worth of cocaine (some 18 and a half kilos) taken out by a female passenger managed to slip through the CJIA in Guyana on a Delta Airlines flight to New York on June 2nd 2010.


The 25 year old woman Chandinee Segobind checked in as the last passenger on the aircraft that was heading to New York. The law enforcement officials are still baffled how the cocaine was able to beat the scanner at the airport once again.


According to US court documents, an agent of the Drug Enforcement Administration found that on June 2nd a Black Hays suitcase with a baggage tag in the name of a Queens’ woman Chandinee Segobind was abandoned on the Delta carousel at JFK. Once the bag was not claimed it was taken to Customs for inspection.


The agents found that the bag contained 18 Kerry Gold powdered milk packages. The contents of the packages field tested positive for cocaine. In fact the federal agents found eighteen and a half kilos of cocaine in the Kerry Gold packages.


Nearly one week later following investigations on both sides of the Atlantic, on June 8th the investigators went to a residence on 82nd Street in Queens New York where they identified, questioned and arrested Chandinee Segobind. The woman according to the court documents told the investigators that she checked in the bag in Guyana, knew that drugs were in the bag and that she was supposed to be paid for doing the job.


But that is not the only drug bust that has the officials wondering who has brought in a shipment of cocaine to Guyana and is trying to distribute the drugs to markets in North America and Europe.


Yesterday June 14 2010 an American man Lewis Malik Duffie was jailed in Georgetown for four years and fined over 5 million dollars for trying to smuggle out six kilos in the false sides of his suitcase on June 12 at the CJIA. He was heading to New York on a Caribbean Airlines flight.


Recently particularly at weekends drugs have been found on passengers headed out of Guyana on Liat, Delta and Caribbean Airlines flights. The Police are also investigating an attempt on Thursday last to move drugs in a FEDEX package on the Roraima Airlines charter that takes FEDEX packages to Trinidad and Tobago.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I
    needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a
    massive amount work? I’m brand new to blogging but I do write in my
    diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

    I believe everything posted made a lot of sense. But, what
    about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added
    a headline to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean 100 Million Guyana dollars
    worth of Cocaine in abandoned suitcase at JFK
    leads to arrest of 25 year old Queens’ Woman. –
    Capitol News is kinda plain. You could peek
    at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    news titles to grab viewers to click. You might
    add a related video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little
