A Guyanese woman who is originally from Plaisance, but now works in neighbouring Suriname as a vendor, was busted at the Cheddi Jagan Airport with more than 4 pounds of cocaine in book covers and various containers.
The 42-year-old mother of seven has been identified as Tommy-Ann Bunbury.
She recently traveled to Guyana from Suriname and was preparing to board a New York bound flight at the Cheddi Jagan Airport on Monday when the bust was made by CANU agents.
In its statement, CANU said the woman has been living in Suriname for the past six years but would travel over to Guyana regularly.
According to CANU, cocaine was found stashed in the fake cover of books, the containers for make-up and other personal care items and even stationery items.
All of the items were stashed in two suitcases that the woman had in her possession.
The cocaine weighed just over four pounds in total, according to CANU. Bunbury was immediately taken into custody and will face the Courts soon.
