A 64-year-old Brooklyn man was busted at the New York's JFK Airport on Tuesday for allegedly trying to smuggle a kilo of cocaine inside fudge candy when he arrived from Trinidad and Tobago.
According to reports, Noel Llewellyn stepped off a JetBlue flight from Trinidad on Tuesday and presented his zebra-striped suitcase for inspection to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.
Inside the suitcase were four boxes of Tortuga chocolate rum fudge.
Mourners who attended the funeral of Trinidad and Tobago teenager, Tyreke Borel, who was shot dead at the Labour Day J'ouvert celebrations in Brooklyn last week, were only able to see his photos at the church.
No casket was present, as Borel's body is to be brought back to T&T where he will be buried.
No one has yet been arrested, adding to the pain of his family and friends.
“I would like anybody who knows anything or saw anything to come forward,” said Tyreke’s heartbroken mother, Alima St. Clair.
A man and a woman were killed and five other people were injured in two shootings and two stabbings during J'Ouvert celebrations along the West Indian Day Parade route in Brooklyn early Monday morning, police say.
Two more people were injured when a motorcycle they were on was hit by a car.
A man and a women were shot at Empire Boulevard and Flatbush Avenue during the pre-parade festivities in Crown Heights shortly before 4 a.m.
A 57-year-old Trinidadian woman was stabbed 83 times while at her Brooklyn, New York apartment on Saturday.
She was identified as Liza Millet, a resident of the Y.W.C.A., at 30 Third Avenue in the Boerum Hill neighborhood.
After an intense seven-month investigation, NYPD detectives Friday arrested a Queens man in the killing of an aide to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo during a wild gunfight at a West Indian celebration in September, an official said.
Micah Alleyne, 24, was charged with second-degree murder, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in connection with the fatal shooting of Carey Gabay, 43, on Sept. 7, 2015, according to court papers unsealed Friday in Brooklyn.
