US-bound female nabbed with cocaine in crotch
A 51-year-old female United States citizen was taken into police custody early yesterday morning after she was nabbed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, with a quantity of cocaine concealed in her crotch.
Reports are that the discovery was made at around 06:00 hours as the woman was preparing to board a Delta Airlines flight to New York.
A source close to the investigation said that during a pat down (a search of her outer clothing using hands), ranks from the Police Anti-Narcotics Unit noticed an ‘extraordinary bulge’ in her crotch area. The woman was then taken to a private room where she was strip-searched. Two latex packets filled with cocaine were found in the woman’s underwear. She was taken into custody and told of the offence. This publication was told that the woman arrived in the country some time ago and was staying at a hotel in Campbellville. However no other information has been forthcoming from the woman about who invited her to Guyana.
Investigations are ongoing.
