A Jamaican man was arrested in Guyana on Tuesday after authorities unearthed a move by him to ship cocaine in roll-on bottles through the postal system.

According to www.guyanachronicle.com, the Jamaican national was arrested after trying to ship more than one pound of cocaine in deodorant bottles through the post office.

Reports are that Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit agents stationed at the post office became suspicious when the man presented the cheap deodorants to be shipped.

THE WEEKEND STAR gathered that when a detailed inspection was done, agents realised that all the items were of the same scent and this further sparked their interest.

When the balls were extracted from approximately 20 deodorant bottles, it was discovered that cocaine was concealed in the bottles.

The suspect's name is being withheld as charges are expected to be laid soon.
