Eccles man wanted over East Bank drug bust

The Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) yesterday issued a wanted bulletin for an Eccles resident in relation to narcotics found at Diamond, East Bank Demerara last Monday.

Wanted is Reginald “Reggie” Brown, 43, of 269 BB Eccles, East Bank Demerara.

No information was given on the quantity of narcotics found or the circumstances. However, during an operation in the Golden Grove/Diamond area on Monday, CANU ranks had discovered a large quantity of marijuana and cocaine, in addition to over $1 million in cash.

Yesterday, one of the men held during the operation, Dexter Daniels, pleaded guilty to ownership of the drugs and was sentenced to serve a total of three years in jail.

It is unclear if Brown is wanted in relation to any of those two finds.

Anyone with information on Brown’s whereabouts can contact CANU on 227-3507.
