Several leads are being pursued and charges are expected to be laid shortly, a statement from the Airport said. The aircraft had touched down at Cheddi Jagan International Airport at 12:11 hrs from Trinidad to pick up passengers enroute to Toronto, Canada.
After all baggage was offloaded from the aft hold, airline security conducted a sweep of the hold as per Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). It was during this exercise; two packages of the illegal substance were discovered.
The police were immediately summoned to check the suspect package. iNews understands that four ramp attendants are in police custody.
