The News Room understands that Moore was intercepted at the Berbice car park at Commerce Street, Georgetown; he was the sole occupant of the car at the time and a search of the vehicle unearthed the cocaine in a panel of the trunk.

Jordan was subsequently arrested in front of his house and according to CANU, a bag containing a digital tabletop scale with traces of suspected cocaine was found.
