On June 8, at about 02:00h, members of the Police Narcotics Branch intercepted a quantity of cocaine in some 33 boxes containing frozen fish to be exported. The boxes were found among other cargo during a routine check by Police.
At the time, 10 persons were arrested, including six ramp attendants attached to a handling service at the main port of entry. The others were reportedly shipping agents. The consignment of frozen fish was destined for the United States of America.
However, further investigations led to the arrest of two West Bank Demerara (WBD) siblings – Shafur Alli, 27, of Lot 27 La Jalousie, and Lazena Imrazie, 22, of Lot 8 Goed Fortuin, WBD. They were subsequently charged for being in the possession of 9.044 kilograms of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
