Father, son nabbed at airport with cocaine in bag handles

Two men are now in custody following the discovery of cocaine in the handles of their suitcases while they were waiting to board a flight destined for New York at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri (CJIA) yesterday afternoon.

Stabroek News understands that the two, a 41-year-old man and his 19-year-old son who reside at North Road, Georgetown, were about to board Caribbean Airlines flight BW 528 when they were arrested.

According to a police statement on the discovery, ranks of the Police Narcotics Branch conducted a search on the baggage of a Guyanese National on an outgoing flight at the CJIA and found a quantity of cocaine in the handles of his suitcases.
