Acting on information, agents of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit carried out searches on a box of Guyanese ornaments that was being shipped out of the country and discovered a quantity of cocaine.
The box which contained a Guyana Tourism book and various locally made craft pieces and ornaments was discovered with false sides.
According to CANU, when the false sides were removed, 294 grams of cocaine was found in the false bottom of the same box.
The bust took was made on Thursday at a shipping company and CANU has since made one arrest as it continues to probe the matter.
CANU investigators have found that drug pushers in their attempt to get cocaine out of Guyana, have been using more shipping companies.
Earlier this week, a quantity of cocaine was found in a box of fudge that was destined for the United States. A husband and wife were arrested. The husband pleaded guilty and is now serving four years in jail for the crime.
