The Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) has issued wanted bullets to Edinho Lewis of Shopping Plaza, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown and Chelsea Collins of David Rose Street, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown in connection with the recent cocaine bust at the Eugene F Correia International Airport, Ogle.
CANU ranks found about 534 grams of cocaine in a pack of local snacks that were due in Brooklyn, New York, USA last Wednesday. Pilgrim Pathrina, 30, of Lot 2 ‘C’ North Road, Bourda, Georgetown, is alleged to have attempted to ship the package overseas. The Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) has said the box was intercepted before it was loaded on a flight at Eugene F. Correia International Airport, Ogle. In the box, which contained packages of coconut basket, mittai, chicken foot, and a packet of uncooked vermicelli, the cocaine was wrapped in carbon and hidden in a fake wall at the bottom. Several people have been questioned in the ongoing investigation following that discovery. CANU asks anyone who may know where these people are to kindly contact CANU Headquarters at (592) -227-3507 or (592) -226-0431. Meanwhile, Pilgrim on Friday had been held in jail after being slapped with a charge of trafficking in narcotics. He appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly at Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied possession of 534 grams of cocaine until January 27 for human trafficking purposes. The case will continue on February 9. (G9)
