Three arrested after search of party boats

Three people will appear in court this morning charged with drug possession after police searched two party boats over the weekend and found marijuana on board.

Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said search operations were carried out by the Police Marine Unit and the Barbados Coast Guard on the MV Buccaneer around 11:45 pm on Saturday and around 4:45 am on Sunday on the Jolly Roger.
He said the MV Buccaneer was stopped off the Bridgetown Fisheries Complex, escorted back to its berth at Cavans Lane and searches of the boat and persons aboard were conducted.

Loose quantities of cannabis, weighing a total of 84 grammes, were found discarded in various parts of the boat and the cruise was discontinued.Three persons were arrested: Dario Deigo Bowen, 20, of Marchfield, St. Philip; Javon Justin Fabian Yearwood, 24, of Kendall Hill, Christ Church; and Tania Nariba Grant, 33, of Rockhampton Road, Grazettes, St. Michael.

They will appear in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today.

The search of the Jolly Roger was carried out while the boat was docked at the Wharf.

About 18 grammes of cannabis was found but no one was arrested.

Welch said, however, that business on the boat was discontinued.

    Locking up people for weed these days is a clear indication that we are still living under colonial control.
