Due to diligent investigative work by the various agencies, authorities at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport have made yet another huge cocaine bust.
According to information reaching INews, last evening, officers of the Police Narcotics Branch intercepted a cargo shipment of over thirty boxes of frozen seafood of which eight contained a total of 88.2 kilos of cocaine.
A source told INews that the shipment was part of outgoing cargo at the airport.
So far, one person has been arrested and is assisting with the investigation. However, a source close to the investigation said that it is highly possible that several other persons were involved in trying to smuggle the illegal substance out of the country.
