Two weeks after Police issued a wanted bulletin for him, the Plaisance businessman,who later turned himself in to the Police, was today remanded to prison, after being charged with cocaine trafficking.
27-year-old, Delvor Bunbury, stood before Magistrate Leron Daly and denied the allegation that on the 11th September at BelAir, he trafficked 1.828 kilograms of cocaine.
The man’s arrest is linked to the cocaine bust the at Cheddi Jagan Airport involving ex-policeman, Travis Mendonca, who has since pleaded guilty and has been sentenced.
Based on evidence, the investigators believe that it was Bunbury who supplied the cocaine to the ex-policeman for trafficking purposes.
Bunbury was today remanded to prison until the 20th October, 2017.
His Attorney told the Court that the cocaine was never found in his client’s possession and has since gone missing from the Police evidence room.
However, the Police Prosecutor stated that Police during their investigations discovered that Delvor Bunbury was involved in the supply of cocaine to the ex-policeman, who was busted.
The Court heard that he provided a drug laden suitcase to a taxi driver to deliver it to the ex-policeman.
The former policeman was busted on the same day during his attempt to leave the country with the same drug laden suitcase.
This is not the first time that Bunbury has found himself before the courts in relation to a cocaine trafficking matter. He was charged back in March of this year after a quantity of cocaine was found in a bag at the Cheddi Jagan airport.
