Another Jamaican charged with drugs

Yet another Jamaican has been nabbed while attempting to bring drugs into the country.

Crosswell Chester Henry is expected to appear at the District A Magistrates Court today to answer four drug charges.

Henry is charged with possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of two and a half pounds of cannabis.

After arriving in Barbados on Wednesday morning, he was intercepted by members of the Drug Squad at the Grantley Adams International Airport.

Henry cleared Immigration, but after being interviewed by the police he was referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he subsequently passed out one hundred and twenty packets of cannabis he had ingested.

    A pack of illiterate Jamaicans. Day in and day out it is the same thing.

    In an Apartment opposite me,a number of Jamaican ” hairdressers ” who ply their trade in the Red Light districts at night ,always make a lot of noise around 2 or 3 am when they alight from a taxi .

    During the day,some of them can be seen scantily dress trying to solicit customers.

      St. Maarten and Curacao only became independent at the end of 2010. I was shock to see that by 2013 the government in those islands were already so fete-up, they imposed visa restrictions on Ja and Guyana only 2 years since they became independent of the Netherland Antilles Federal government.

      Jamaicans not easy,there the ones causing all the problems in the uk making it harder for West Indians living there. No all Jamaicans are bad but the government allow the criminals to hold passports and get visas because they won’t have them to deal with.

    Stop blaming Jamaicans, ask the police when last they have arrested and charge a major criminal or drug lord in Barbados. its only the low life is always caught. who is protecting the big up criminals on the island.

  19. Maxine Hutchinson April 19, 2015 at 9:32 pm

    Just wondering ……., could it be that some of the so-called drug mules are people who may have committed crimes and now they are at loggerheads with their pals in crime and are finding a way of hiding out to save their lives? Why would they repeatedly bring drugs when they know full well that they are going to be caught by our sniffer dogs and officers? Deport them right away and give them the drugs to carry back also while informing their government that this is our way of dealing with those “pharmacists”.

    I am shocked at the disdain some of you Bajans have for Jamaicans. I am a Jamaican American who was planning to vacation in Barbados but I will not waste a dollar of my money in that cesspool. Butch Stewart is a traitor for investing in Barbados. Reggae artists should also boycott Barbados. Any Jamaican artists that perform there will not see me supporting them. Jamaica should also stop allowing Alison Hinds from performing in Jamaica. Take a stand Jamaica. Who are these small islands that keep disrespecting us anyway.

  21. Hardball April 20, 2015 at 6:38 am

    You all should stop condemning Jamaica. This is the laws of supply and demand. Jamaica have the weed and the Bajans want the weed. Its the same for the US and Mexico, the US is the largest drug market for Mexico, that’s why they dig tunnels to get it there.

    If the culture in Barbados don’t change and change for the better soon, we are going to end up just like Jamaica.
