Cocaine busted in Cheese rolls and Pine tarts at CJIA

Drug pushers in Guyana continue to find new and innovative ways in their efforts to get cocaine out of the country.

A 37-year-old man from Canje, Berbice identified as Nicholas Harrinandan, is in the custody of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit after he was busted at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport with over 15 pounds of cocaine in cheese rolls, pine tarts, mettai and the false bottom of shoes. Instead of cheese and pine in the pastries, the man allegedly baked cocaine into the food items and packed them away in his suitcase.

He was busted by CANU agents while getting ready to board a New York bound flight on Sunday night.

The Customs Anti Narcotics Unit has been leading the way with drug busts at the Airport. Just two weeks ago, CANU agents busted several pounds of cocaine in a shipment of awarra that was destined for Canada. In that case, the cocaine was found hidden in several small false awarras which were mixed with the real fruit.

Over the past year, cocaine has been found in several food items at the airport.
