Woman remanded for trafficking 6.7 kilos of cocaine in hammocks


The woman who recently surrendered to the Custom Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), after reportedly attempting to ship hammocks that were laced with cocaine, was on Tuesday remanded when she appeared before Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan.

Tiffini Tricia Collison,26, of Guyhoc Park, Georgetown appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied the charge brought against her.

That charged alleged that on September 20, 2017, she attempted to traffic 6.742 kilograms of cocaine.

CANU’s Prosecutor, Konyo Sandiford detailed that under her mother’s identity, the accused attempted to post four hammocks via DHL shipping.

However, the hammocks which were laced with cocaine and were destined for the United States was discovered by a CANU rank at the Eugene F. Correia International Airport, at Ogle, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

As such, a wanted bulletin was issued for Collison who days later surrendered to CANU with an Attorney.

She was remanded to prison and is expected to make her next court appearance on October 19, 2017.
