Suspected drug trafficker arrested at Eccles home with cocaine, ammunition
Andrew Morgan, the brother of Peter Morgan – a deportee and convicted drug trafficker – was arrested on Monday by ranks of the Customs Anti Narcotic Unit (CANU).
In a brief statement, CANU said it conducted an operation at the man’s Eccles, East Bank Demerara home where a quantity of cocaine and ammunition was found.
No other details were released by CANU.
The News Room understands that Andrew had been on CANU’s radar for some time and was being investigated for several drug deliveries.
His brother, Peter, was released from a prison in the United States in 2015 and deported to Guyana and has since been monitored as part of the Crimes Prevention Act which allows the police to keep a close watch on those who would have been deported to this country.
Peter is listed in several online articles as being a close associate of former drug kingpin Roger Khan who was also nabbed and served time in a United States prison.
