Man arrested with cocaine strapped to body

Suspected mule, Gordon Lino

Constable Mark Fraser, days after he was bestowed with the title of best cop in B Division (Berbice), has reportedly played an integral role in the arrest of a Suriname-based Guyanese as he was attempting to smuggle a quantity of cocaine through the Moleson Creek Crossing Saturday morning.
Gordon Lino, 41, of South Ruimveldt, Georgetown, but formerly of Mangrase Straat No 2 Paramaribo, was found with just over 1kg of the illicit substance strapped to his body. He was reportedly heading to South Drain Terminal from Moleson Creek.
The police in the area believed his accomplice had used the backtrack route but Lino decided to use the legal route thinking he would have passed with the cocaine.
Upon his arrest, the police ranks during investigation realised that he was in contact with several persons in Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Aruba and Suriname, all of whom were enquiring about a “package” that was supposed to be delivered.
The phone numbers have been released to drug enforcement officers in those countries. The police have alerted their counterparts in Suriname with information regarding the suspected accomplice.
