[www.inewsguyana.com] – Twenty-one-year old Keon Brewster was charged with the illegal possession of cocaine, to which he pleaded guilty and subsequently sentenced to four years imprisonment by Magistrate Ann McLennan on Monday, June 29.
Brewster of ‘B’ Field, Sophia, Greater Georgetown, was also fined $17.2 million. Details surrounding the case state that on May 29 at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, (CJIA), Brewster had in his possession 6.304 kilogrammes of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
Brewster was charged jointly with two air conditioning technicians attached to the airport. He had initially pleaded not guilty. Based on footage from the video surveillance, investigators believe that the transaction took place in one of the washrooms at the airport.
Anti Narcotics Police said they recognized that the rum appeared unusually thick and so they decided to test and weigh it. Brewster identified the two technicians as the persons who allegedly gave him the drug in rum after he was arrested.
