Evidence of collusion in airport drug bust -CJIA

As the police intensify their investigations into the 2.2 kilogrammes of cocaine found on BW 606 aircraft yesterday, May 23, 2014, there is strong evidence to suggest that staff from more than one agency were working in collusion to facilitate this illegality, a release from the CJIA said today.

Several leads are being pursued and charges are expected to be laid shortly, the release said.

The aircraft had touched down at Cheddi Jagan International Airport at 12:11 hrs from Trinidad to pick up passengers enroute to Toronto, Canada.

After all the baggage had been offloaded from the aft hold, airline security conducted a sweep of the hold as per Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). It was during this exercise that two packages of the illegal substance were discovered.

The police were immediately summoned to check the suspect package.
