Two Jamaicans on drug charges

A Jamaican man and woman are set to appear in the District ‘B’ Magistrates court today to answer drug related charges.

Hooden Mykini Blackwood, 31, and businesswoman Tamika Latoya Fearon, 36, are each facing four charges of possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply cannabis, trafficking cannabis and importation of cannabis.

Blackwood was arrested after arriving at the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA) on Sunday. After being interviewed by police, he was referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he subsequently passed out 136 packages of cannabis weighing 2.2 pounds.

Fearon arrived at the GAIA on May 8, but after being interviewed by police, a search of her luggage revealed two taped packages of cannabis concealed in false compartments of her suitcase. The drugs weighed four pounds.

    A sign needs to be place at their Airports stating that ALL persons who have drugs on their person WILL be caught on arrival in Bdos…..stan home !!

    Customs Officers working hard at the Airport along with the Police but getting little recognition and awards from the ungrateful administrators including the political directorate.

    Customs Officers and police have a fight on there hands if u know Jamaicans they don’t give up that easy they will try and try and try until they get the drugs in BIM. I must say some will get in .Jamaica should start doing like the U.S.A check the damn luggage before they leave .on the other hand the Jamaicans Customs Officers probably getting a cut if they get the drugs into the country

    Good suggestion cecil P
    Barbados political directorate should push the idea of the authorities in Jamaica searching departing passengers.

    This is very sad, these people willing to take this risk when they know most probably they will be arrested. Some us make jokes at these unfortunate people not realizing that within a short period of time this country will be just like Jamaica, doesn’t matter which party is in power BLP/DLP we are heading straight in this direction.
