The quartet that CANU has charged in connection with the discovery of more than 1.8 kilogrammes of cocaine at a house at Timehri, East Bank Demerara.

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.
