[] – A 24 – year – old woman was early Wednesday morning (February 26) caught at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) after Customs and Anti Narcotic Unit (CANU) officers discovered a quantity of cocaine in the guise of achar in one of her luggage.

The discovery was made around 05:00hrs.  She was an outgoing passenger on BW 525.
