Colin Clyde Prescod is a multiple cocaine offender. He allows traffickers to use his license and business as front for shipping out of the country. A few months ago 80 bags with cocaine in an outbound container was seized by CANU/GRA/Police. This was blamed on his daughter and some Indian man. No one was arrested or charged.
Money was paid and CANU, the Police & Guyana Forestry Commission brushed it under the rug It never made the news.
Prescod is a PPP big boy for Silver Hill and the surrounding villages and boasts of his party connections all the time. He is often seen in the company of known cocaine traffickers.
He’s been involved in robberies, fraud, land grabs, rape and illegal logging. With all this information available to the enforcement division, Tashreef Khan and other senior officials at Guyana Forestry Commission renew Prescod’s license every year.
Cocaine found in charcoal bound for US
A Linden businessman is in custody following the seizure of a quantity of cocaine packed among several hundred bags of charcoal in a 40-ft container at Silver Hill, Soesdyke/Linden Highway, Head of the Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) James Cocaine Singh said yesterday.
Singh said there are hundreds of bags in the container and agents are still going through them to ascertain just how much of the illicit drug the man was attempting to ship out of Guyana.
A statement last night from the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) said that officers of its Law Enforcement and Investigation Division (LEID) and the Port Control Unit (PCU) of the United Nations Office of Drug and Crime (UNODC) were late yesterday afternoon seeking to ascertain the quantity, weight and estimated value of the cocaine.
The GRA said that based on information received from the PCU, a joint examination was conducted on the shipment which was scheduled to be exported to the United States after it was flagged for 100% examination on March 11, 2015.
The shipment was scheduled for examination on March 13, at Silver Hill, in the presence of the GRA’s Goods Examination Unit (GEU) and the PCU. However, the statement said that the exporter did not present the consignment for examination on the scheduled date, saying that he was experiencing “unforeseen difficulties”.
