The Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) had stated that an operation was carried out at Lots 32 and 34 Craig Street Campbellville, Georgetown.


During the operation, a quantity of transparent glass tubes labelled lidocaine, and a quantity of substances suspected to be cocaine were discovered.


Gomes and his father, Andre Gomes, were arrested and escorted to CANU’s Headquarters along with the suspected substances and the quantity of transparent glass tubes. The substances tested positive for cocaine and had a total weight of 24.4 grams.


The younger Gomes, in 2018, was charged with Mohammed Kadir for trafficking 4.9 pounds of cocaine at Sheriff Street. The duo was found guilty and was slapped with a four years jail term and a $6 million fine.
