2 British with over $6m worth of cocaine arrested at Kotoka

On Monday, June 10, 2024, an intelligence-led operation by Officers of the Narcotics Control Commission and the UK National Crime Agency, led to the interception of a total of 166.88kg of substances suspected to be cocaine from the luggage of two British National passengers who were travelling together.

The substance is estimated to have a street value of $6,480,000. The British passengers are Hall Shamin Ethline, and Graham Omar Adel.

The suspects were scheduled to board a British Airways flight to Gatwick, and checked in their luggage—3 bags each, which were all found to contain 72 slabs of the suspected cocaine.

A breakdown of the seizures made is as follows.

Luggage of Hall Shamin Ethline contained a total of 83.44KG of suspected cocaine, along with her personal items.

Luggage of Graham Omar Adel contained a total of 83.44KG of suspected cocaine, along with his personal items.

The two have accordingly been arrested, assisting investigations.

The busting of the suspected criminals reinforces the alertness of the NACOC without bias over nationality, signaling their commitment to the safety of travelers and preparedness to combat flight terminal threats relating to the possession of drugs.
