BREAKING NEWS…Three immigration staff, among others, arrested for cocaine found on Dynamic flight

2

Three immigration officers are under close-arrest in relation to the package of cocaine which was unearthed in the baggage hold of a flight that had arrived at the John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) in New York from Guyana earlier this month.

dynamicINews also understands that two employees of Dynamic Airways are also in police custody while another staff has gone into hiding.

A source close to the investigation told INews that the immigration officers confessed to having assisted in taking the illegal substance through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).

Reports are that the package of cocaine, weighing almost two pounds, was discovered by a handling staff while clearing the luggage from the aircraft upon its arrival in the U.S.

The handler at JFK then notified his supervisors and the drug enforcement unit at the JFK airport about his discovery and investigations into the matter subsequently began.

With the help of U.S. authorities, the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) along with the Guyana Police Narcotics Branch began intense investigations into the matter which led to the arrest of the above-mentioned individuals.

INews was told that although these persons have been implicated in the matter, investigations are still-going to ensure that “the matter is thoroughly probed.”

Meanwhile, Capt. Gerry Gouveia, head of the local handling agency for Dynamic Airways in Guyana in a comment to INews this morning, stated that for the past two years since the airline began operating in Guyana this is the first time an incident of this nature has occurred.

However, he said that his management team, shares the view that the Police are free to dig deep into the matter, and for persons who are found guilty they will have to “face the full brunt of the law”.

    Let me say it again:: On both sides of the isle you have to have high connections to make illicit drugs exit and enter countries.. America only want people to think they are Holier Than Thou in fighting a war on drugs..They are not because they cant curb the ferocious American appetite for illicit drugs. If America really want to declare war on illicit drugs then take the your drug war money and help weaned your people off illicit drugs..
    America must also declare war on Gun killings in America since 30000 Americans each year die due to gun violence and not through terrorists.
    Come on America you say yo are the richest and most powerful country in the world so have the balls to stand up and say you wrong when you wrong.
    The American people are good people just like the good people of all other countries but they dont like bullies and they see you as bully.

    Right now there are many Government including American Canada and UK trying to stamp out the big bag bullies in schools. Be fair to all and practice best what you preach best–free fair transparent credible none violent elections where every vote must count..
    Most other countries sees only ABC countries votes counts when ABC countries wants regime change led by no other than US.
