[www.inewsguyana.com] – Forty Nine – year – old Sandra Daniels was today charged with cocaine in nail buffer and was remanded to prison by Magistrate Judy Latchman.

The woman of Dennis Street, Sophia, Greater Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the offence, which alleged that on May 8 at the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC), she had in her possession 274 grammes of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

The Court heard that Daniels is a mother of five and is a receptionist at Banks DIH.

Custom Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) Prosecutor Oswald Messiah, told the Court that Daniels visited the Post Office on Thursday with the intention to post a carton box to Spain.

He said during a procedural check in the presence of the defendant, a quantity of salon products were found in the box which included fake nails, nail decoration and buffers.

The CANU officer carried out a further search of the products which revealed in the middle of each of the forty-two buffers, transparent plastic filled with cocaine.

Under the caution, the woman said a close male friend from Spain visited Guyana two weeks ago and asked her to post the products.

The Court heard that Daniels was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in England for a similar drug trafficking offence, after which she was deported.

The case will call again on June 2.
