Two years after he was freed on another drug released charge, 49 year old Christopher Dexter Garraway of Norton Street, Lodge Georgetown, was arrested by ranks of Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) after he was found with a quantity of ecstasy pills on Monday.
The drug bust was a joint operation between CANU ranks and GRA enforcement officers at # 79, Corriverton, Berbice. They intercepted a motor vehicle and a subsequent search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a quantity of pinkish pills suspected to be ecstasy.
The suspected narcotics tested positive for ecstasy. The four (4) parcels containing 400 pills weighed a total of 150.7 grammes and had a street value of $600,000.
Garraway’s arrest comes two years after he was believed to be the supplier of $6.5 million dollars worth of cocaine. He was found not guilty then but a porter was slapped with a 3 years sentence and a $19.7 million fine.
Investigations are ongoing.
