A St Ann man who was arrested while attempting to export more than a million dollars worth of cocaine to Canada last month, is scheduled to make his first court appearance today.



Fifty-one-year-old Everald Golding, from St Ann, who was arrested on December 22 for attempting to export cocaine and hashish, is to appear before the Montego Bay Resident Magisrate's Court.



The police say Golding checked in at the Sangster International Airport for a flight destined for Toronto, Canada when he was stopped and searched.



One-hundred-and-twenty-seen cocaine pellets weighing approximately two and a half pounds were allegedly found on him.



The police say the drug had an estimated street value of $1.6 million.



A search of his luggage reportedly revealed two and a half pounds of hashish valued at $920,000.
