3 busted with $1.1M worth of cocaine at Prashad Nagar house

For the second time in less than one year, ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit have arrested a female after a quantity of cocaine was found at her Prashad Nagar, Georgetown home.

The cocaine that was found by CANU

The discovery was made on Friday when CANU officers conducted an operation at the premises located on Shantiniketan Street, Prasad Nagar.
At the time, 63-year-old Lena Narine along with 54-year-old Sherman Edmonson and 49-year-old Earl Branch of Pike Street, Kitty, Georgetown, were present at the residence. Narine is the owner of the house, while Edmonson is a resident there as well.
CANU said a search was conducted at the house in the presence of three persons during which a brick-like parcel, suspected to be cocaine, was found.
The trio was escorted to CANU’s Headquarters with the suspected narcotic, which has since tested positive for cocaine, amounting to 1.050kg, with a street value of approximately $1.1 million.
Narine, was previously arrested along with two other persons in March 2022, when CANU officers discovered 11.4kg of cocaine and 266g ecstasy at the same Prashad Nagar address.
Investigations are ongoing into Friday’s cocaine bust.
