Businessman, taxi driver arrested in cocaine probe
Ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) have arrested two men in connection with the discovery of 504 grams (one pound) of cocaine in the trunk of a car on Wednesday.
In police custody are 47-year-old Cordell Moore, a taxi driver who plies the Georgetown-Berbice route and who resides at Glasgow Housing Scheme, New Amsterdam, Berbice and 50-year-old Ulric Jordan, a businessman of Camp Street, Georgetown.
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.
Both men were also found with a quantity of cash in their possession. They are slated to appear in court on Friday morning.
