On the same day that he was celebrating his 66th birthday, a U.S national found himself being arrested after being busted with cocaine at the Cheddi Jagan Airport.
According to sources, Roderick Andrew Chase was preparing to board a New York-bound Caribbean Airlines flight when he was nabbed with the cocaine in the sole of his shoes.
Chase was going through security at the airport when he was stopped and pulled aside for additional searches.
Security officials reportedly became suspicious after noticing that the man was traveling with no checked luggage. He was nabbed by the agents as he made his way through the full-body scanner.
The “birthday man” was immediately arrested and will likely face the Court before the end of this week.
The matter is still under investigation.
