Three drug accused to appear in court today
Three Barbadians are due to appear in the District “C” Magistrate’s Court today in connection with Sunday’s seizure of 54 pounds of compressed cannabis.
They are Anderson Omar Lorde, 31, and Dario Layne, 22, of Silver Sands, Christ Church, and 48-year old Jeffrey Alleyne of Hinkson Gap, Baxters Road, St Michael.
The men, who were reportedly nabbed during an operation at sea off the Crane, St Philip, are jointly charged with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.
During the joint operation by members of the Drug Squad, the Police Maine Unit and the Barbados Coast Guard, a Barbadian registered fishing boat was intercepted with three men on board.
A subsequent search of the nearby beach discovered one duffle bag containing the illegal drug, the police said.
