Officials of Guyana’s Customs Anti Narcotics Unit have been working with their counterparts in Suriname to track down the Guyanese businesswoman who remains on the run from the drug enforcement authorities.
Last week, a wanted bulletin was issued for the woman, Rosemary Singh, aka “Rose” of Annandale, East Coast Demerara.
Reports in another section of the media, claimed that the woman was arrested in Suriname. However, CANU investigators have disputed the report, saying that no arrest has been made and “Rose” remains on the run.
News Source understands that it is suspected that the wanted woman may be hiding out in the neighbouring country or French Guiana.
She is wanted in connection with the investigations into a massive cocaine bust that took place in Canada.
In that bust, a bauxite ship that departed Linden here in Guyana, back in September, arrived in Canada with more than 175 pounds of cocaine stashed in its hold.
The Guyanese authorities immediately launched an investigation and the woman’s name popped up in several instances. She has not been seen since the bust and last week, CANU issued a wanted bulletin for her arrest.
Canadian authorities have made arrests in the case over in Canada. Among those arrested is a Guyanese national who has links to both Guyana and Suriname.
Investigators are looking at the route that was used by the cargo ship on its way back to Canada and the persons here and in Suriname who may be linked to its operations.
