Jamaican sentenced to Dodds

A 25-year-old Jamaican who swallowed 80 packages of marijuana and brought them to Barbados in his stomach, was today sentenced to prison at Dodds, in St. Philip.

When Leon Lincoln Smart appeared at the District “B” Magistrate’s Court, he pleaded guilty on all four charges – possession of two pounds of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.

Smart was given two years on each of those counts, with the exception of possession, for which he was convicted, reprimanded and discharged.

The Jamaica national arrived in at Grantley Adams International Airport from his homeland at about 7:25 p.m. on Sunday, March 17, and after clearing immigration and being questioned by the Police Drug Squad, was referred to a medical facility, where he passed out the drugs. (EJ)†

    Wake up and call out the Jamaican government for its incompetent ways. We need to place visa restrictions on all Jamaicans entering Bim. Haven’t drugs in Oranges,and racing cars thought us anything. We’re dealing with A corrupt nation with tunnel vision. The Jamaican businesses that are here should all be monitored at all times, goods that are going to these businesses should be giving special attention. Its called intelligence gathering it is what the US,n,Uk used against Jamaican businesses. We need similar programs in Bim. Suddenly Jamaicans have taken an Interest in our country. We must never forget that it was Jamaicans who never wated one Caribbean. They wanted A bigger share of the pie, got it and ate it all.10 times bigger than Barbados is they favorite cry, sadly that’s they only advantage.
