Guyanese facing more than a dozen drug-related charges

A Guyanase national has been slapped with 13 drug-related charges, while a Barbadian is facing eight.

Guyanese Gregory Manson-Hing, 31, of Craigg Road, St Lawrence, Christ Church and Adrian Obrian Hinds, 54, of Durants, Christ Church were jointly charged with eight offences in connection with a drug find at Skeete’s Bay, St Philip on December 8.

They have been charged with possession of 53.2 pounds of cannabis, possession with intent to supply cannabis, trafficking cannabis, importation of cannabis, possession of 31.7 kilograms of cocaine, possession with intent to supply cocaine, trafficking cocaine and importation of cocaine.

Lawmen say a car was intercepted at Skeete’s Bay, but the occupants escaped.

A search of the vehicle discovered three polythene bags containing 53.2 pounds of cannabis and another bag containing 29 packages of cocaine weighing 31.7 kilograms.

The two accused were arrested following investigations.

Manson-Hing received additional charges following the execution of a search warrant at his residence a few days later.

Police say small quantities of cannabis and cocaine, along with an apparatus were found.

As a result, he is also facing charges of possession of cannabis, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply cocaine, trafficking cocaine and possession of an apparatus.

The two men are due to appear in court tomorrow.

    An island of “junkies” will be a heaven for the drug lords.

    Did not Holy Writ condemn those who lead the children astray to being as one in the middle of the sea with a milestone around his or her neck? Holy Writ does not lie.

    A time will come when those who profit from this kind of merchandise will lay on beds of sickness and will want others to pray for them.

    If you want to help them bear their burden for assisting in destroying the young minds of Barbadians (who are to be the guardians of our heritage since we have no gold, bauxite, oil etc.) when the time comes you can go to their bedside and pray for such persons an then wonder why you find yourself suffering the same [unexplained] sickness.

    Fine him, jail him and then deport him. Go back to Guyana and help destroy your own people and your country. Barbados has more than enough to deal with; we do not need the likes of you adding to it.
