The Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) said Thursday it foiled a plan to smuggle cocaine in a fire extinguisher on an outgoing flight.
“The suspected narcotic was unearthed concealed in a fire extinguisher believed to be destined for placement on an aircraft for an international destination at CJIA (Cheddi Jagan International Airport),” CANU said in a statement.
The law enforcement agency said its agents Tuesday night raided a house at 26 Timehri, East Bank Demerara, and intercepted the cocaine.
Four men are expected to be arraigned in a Lower Court on Friday. They are Dinesh Dias, Anthony Collins, Seenarine Mathura and Mohamed Inshan.
