Andrew Morgan remanded for cocaine found at Eccles home, gun charges to follow
Suspected drug trafficker, Andrew Morgan, was Wednesday remanded to prison when he appeared at the Diamond Magistrate’s Court to answer to the offence of trafficking narcotics.
His court appearance comes two days after ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) arrested him when just over seven pounds (3.278 kg) of cocaine was found at his Eccles, East Bank Demerara home.
Morgan, who was represented by attorney Stanley Moore, S.C, pleaded not guilty to the charge and was remanded to prison until August 4, 2022.
During the raid at the man’s home on Monday morning, CANU also found and removed a total of 27 9mm rounds, one .32 Taurus firearm along with one magazine and 25 matching .32 rounds.
CANU Head James Singh said Wednesday that Morgan did not face charges for gun possession when he appeared in Court. Instead, the Guyana Police Force will soon institute those charges.
Fifty-two-year-old Morgan is the brother of Peter Morgan – a deportee and convicted drug trafficker.
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.
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.
