BREAKING: Jamaican busted with cocaine in deodorant at GPO

IMG-20160810-WA0003A 54 year old Jamaican national was today (August 10) busted with 540 grams of cocaine concealed in bottles of deodorant at the Guyana Post Office Corporation.

The man was attempting to ship the drugs out of the country when agents from the Customs anti Narcotics unit made the bust during a routine check.

Agents were hit with a scent from the shipment, which prompted them to examine the cargo closer, after which the drugs was discovered inside several deodorant bottles.

The man was arrested and is assisting agents with investigations.

That bust comes on the heels of another one at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport last evening in frozen fish and shrimp. The 88.2 kilos of cocaine was about to be shipped to New York, from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

A West Coast Demerara man was arrested and remains in police custody. That man was arrested at the Airport as he overlooked the preparation of the drug cargo for shipment.
