Law enforcement authorities say the two men detained in connection with the discovery of cocaine pellets worth more 2.5 billion Guyanese dollars, have been helping investigators.

The drugs were found in a consignment of fish food destined for Honk, Kong.

The Guyana Revenue Authority said the drugs were discovered by officers of the Drug Enforcement Unit and the Goods Examination Unit after the container, packed with bags of fish food, was flagged for secondary examination.

The authority said the drugs which were packed in three shipping containers, were found after the search was conducted at the Guyana National Shipping Corporation wharf in the presence of the two men.

It said the cocaine was consigned to a company in China.
