Following intelligence leads, a Guyanese national wanted in the United States for conspiracy to traffic narcotics drugs was arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Nairobi.
Spencer was involved in a cocaine smuggling ring in Guyana that conspired to smuggle cocaine into the U.S. Guyana.
Reports show that in 2015, the syndicate smuggled 1.5kilograms of cocaine through shoe luggage, leading to Spencer's arrest in 2016. He was subsequently taken to court but released on pre-trial conditions.
He violated the conditions, and a warrant of arrest was issued on March 17, 2017. Again, he broke pre-trial conditions of non-appearance and change of address without reporting, and another warrant was issued on March 19, 2018.
The suspect who has been on the run is being held at one of our facilities as detectives process him to answer to his crimes.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
