A Guyanese woman was arrested at the Lynden Pindling International Airport for attempting to smuggle cocaine concealed in her hair weave, into the Bahamas.
Based on reports received, Drug Enforcement Unit officers took the Guyanese woman into custody following the seizure of just over two
pounds of cocaine on Tuesday last- moments after arriving in the Bahamas.
It was reported that just after 15:00h, a team of officers assigned to the DEU conducted a search of the Guyanese female passenger, who had arrived on a Caribbean Airlines flight from Suriname.
During the search, one taped package containing cocaine was found concealed in a weave attached to her hair. She is expected to be charged before the end of the week.
