Kerwin Dimmott, the 29- year-old American citizen who was busted with cocaine at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on Sunday, May 22, was on Tuesday jailed for two years, and slapped with a fine of Gy$30,000.
He was arraigned before acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.
Dimmott, of Boston, Massachusetts, was nabbed at the CJIA by ranks of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU). The cocaine – 2.2 kilograms – was found in a false compartment of his suitcase. He was scheduled to leave on a New York- bound Delta Airlines’ flight.
