“Mr. Clean” passes more cocaine pellets

Guyanese weightlifting champion Colin Aubrey Chesney aka Mr. Clean, has been remanded to jail in the United States on the drug trafficking charge after he was refused bail after appearing in court in the New York area.

The Prosecution team also updated the complaint against Chesney after he excreted additional pellets containing cocaine. When the complaint was first filed on May 25, Chesney had passed 33 cocaine filled pellets.

Three days after that complaint, the US Special Agent attached to the case returned to the court on May 28, 2014, with an updated complaint which stated that the man had passed an additional 21 pellets. In total, “Mr. Clean” passed 54 of the cocaine filled pellets which he had swallowed and was attempting to traffic into the United States.

The total weight of the cocaine found in the pellets excreted by the weightlifter is just over one and a quarter pounds.

Chesney arrived in the U.S on Saturday May 24, 2014 on a Caribbean Airlines flight from Guyana.

According to the court complaint documents obtained by News Source, just after arriving at the JFK Airport, Customs agents approached the national Powerlifting champion, Colin Chesney, for a customs inspection. “During the inspection, the defendant appeared unusually nervous, specifically, the defendant was physically shaking and sweating heavily”, the complaint said.

He was escorted to a private room for a secondary search and it was during that secondary search, Chesney told Customs Inspectors that he had swallowed “foreign bodies” into his stomach. The court documents revealed that Chesney gave consent for an x-ray and was taken to a medical facility at the JFK Airport. The x-ray revealed that there were “foreign bodies” in the man’s intestinal tract and he began passing the cocaine filled pellets.

During a detention hearing, the court ordered that Chesney be detained pending trial, since he posed a risk of not attending court in the future and also posed a risk to the community. He has been appointed a public defender. He faces the possibility of 10 years or more in prison for the drug trafficking offense, once found guilty unless a deal is struck.
