Thirty thousand dollar fine for Jamaican drug smuggler
The Jamaican woman who was caught attempting to smuggle drugs into the country in loaves of bread has been fined $30,000.
Twenty-year-old Chantel Shaunalee Whyte has to pay $15,000 each for possession and trafficking forthwith.
If she doesn’t pay, she faces three years in prison.
The hairdresser pleaded guilty to the charges when she appeared in the District “B” Magistrates Court today, one day after she was caught by police at the Grantley Adams International Airport with a cardboard box containing two packs of bread containing cannabis.
She has also been convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the charges of possession with intent to supply and importation.
