A Jamaican man who attempted to ship cocaine disguised as deodorant has been arrested by members of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU).
The police report that the 54 year old man went to the post office with several bottles of roll-on deodorant, however, CANU agents, based at the post office found it strange that he was shipping such a low cost product from Guyana.
On closer examination, the agents said although the bottles were labeled as having various scents – they all had the same smell.
When the bottles were opened, the police found over one pound of cocaine .
The man, whose name was not released was arrested immediately.
The police say he could be charged before the end of the week.
The bust was made just hours after the police found more than 175 pounds of cocaine in frozen fish at the Cheddi Jagan Airport that was about to be shipped to New York.
