Missing cocaine linked to deaths


Share post:

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Seven kilogrammes of cocaine that went missing may have led to last Saturday’s deadly attack, and the mother and child, who were among those killed, may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, Police Commissioner Henry Greene said. 
Greene told reporters during a Press conference on Tuesday that the latest information is that one of the slain men collected nine kilogrammes of cocaine which came out from Venezuela and was to hand it over to a “certain group”.
However, only two kilogrammes were delivered and the man claimed that the rest had been seized by the police, Greene said, adding that this story was apparently not believed. This may have led to the shooting incident at Cummings Lodge, which claimed five lives.
Greene said the police were working with the information that the incident was drug related, adding that investigators “are hearing so many things about a drug deal gone sour”.
Greene said that police received a report of a shooting at Second Field, South East Cummings Lodge, and on investigating found a motor car with several bullet holes and the bodies of Steve Jupiter, called “Steve Man”; his girlfriend Fiona Singh and their son, Neil Jupiter, three years old, along with Christopher Gordon and Sherwin Jerome, called “Dice Head”, inside.
