Jamaican woman held with drugs

In what has seemingly become the norm, yet another Jamaican has been held trying to sneak drugs into the island.

The latest to be caught is 22-year-old Danielle Tiffany Cole, who is set to appear in  the District ‘A’ Magistrates court today to answer four drug related charges.

Cole has been charged with possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of cannabis.

She was held at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday after a search of her luggage discovered five packages containing four pounds of cannabis in a false compartment.

    Very often I read both the online versions of the Jamaican Gleaner and the Jamaica Observer, and very rarely are these cases given a mention. If women ,especially, in Jamaica were made aware via their media of the folly ,and results of drug muling in Barbados and the wider Caribbean, they may think twice before greed and inducement overtake their reasoning.

    I am appalled at the number of Jamaicans coming to Barbados with drugs. The government of Jamaica should have sniffer dogs at their departure gates to stop so much dope leaving their shores. It looks like the drug mules are using the decision of the Myrie case hoping that our Custom officials turn a blind eye to dope coming in to Bim.
    The Foreign Affair ministry should send a diplomatic letter to Jamaica informing them about our concern if it is one to them.

    Part blame goes to the drug mules, but why we never hear of the Mr bigs , when last have we seen an arrest or prosecution of any of them.
    What i don’t understand , do the police gather information from these people, i have never read,or heard anyone of these people give evidence to the police ,which led to the arrest of anyone , this seems too easy , just like the guns ,they are not bringing in mangoes ,a few of the drug mules live in bim ,but the majority never visited Barbados before.
    We cannot fine them ,they don’t have any money and the bosses are not going to come forward to help, stop wasting us bajans tax dollars. stop blocking up the courts system and our prison. what we should do, if we haven’t got a data base bad news, but we
    need to document they evidence, confiscate the drugs, deportation stamp on they passport, not a good thing to have,

    put them on a plane back to where they came from.

    Yes, I do agree that we need to take the drugs, burn them instantly and depart the person back to Jamaica. There may be a plot. Is it that they believe that they will get money from our government if something goes wrong? Are they planning to take over the prison from the inside? The Colonel would need to interview each of them and hear what is the real motive behind all of them coming into Barbados with drugs. As Barbadians we have to be careful. We are fast becoming foreigners in our country. Could it have anything to do with persons who may have been deported at some time and are making sure that they get to stay, even if it is in Dodds? The Ministry of Home Affairs needs to be vigilant in this regard. A word to the wise is encough.
