Two Antiguan nationals were arrested on their arrival at London’s Gatwick International Airport after they were intercepted with cocaine concealed in their luggage.
The couple, 27-year-old Omarie Benjamin and Sheba Charles 27, was nabbed by Border Force Officers as they were proceeding through Immigration Control to retrieve their suitcases on October 28, a police source said.
The duo arrived in London on a Virgin Atlantic flight, VS 90, from St Lucia.
Prior to their arrival to the UK the duo left Antigua to holiday in St Lucia.
Reports are that border security officers examined the couple’s luggage –a suitcase each– and both contained cocaine amounting to two kilograms.
