The release said that Moore was arrested while he was at the Berbice Car Park at Commerce Street, Georgetown. It added that Moore was the sole occupant of the car at the time.
The CANU release further said that a search of the car revealed that the suspected cocaine, amounting to 504 grammes, was hidden in a panel of the car’s trunk.
Meanwhile , Jordan was intercepted on the same day while he was at his home. The release states that the businessman had a bag containing a digital table top scale which had traces of the suspected cocaine on the instrument when he was arrested.
The release further stated that they each had a quantity of cash in their possession when they were arrested.
