Canadian facing four drug charges

A Canadian visitor who tried to smuggle six kilograms of cannabis into the island yesterday is set to appear in court today.

Brittany Chelsea Kotler, a 24-year-student, will appear in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court this morning charged with possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.

According to police public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch, Kotler arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday.

However, she was detained by Customs Enforcement personnel and a search of her luggage discovered three packages of cannabis weighing six kilos in false compartments. She was subsequently arrested and charged.

    Making Room at DODDS for this kind.
    Hotel Dodds will soon become “The Drug lodge”.

    It infuriates me when a citizen of my country has such disregard for the laws and citizens of a country I tend to think of as home for at least 10% of my life.
    I have been coming here since 1980 and have 26 entry stamps in passports and when people do this crap it make me want to hurl.
    A bit of time in HMP Dodds might teach a few lessons.

    Tourists need the same penalties as locals, you commit a crime, then hard luck you pay the price

    Wonder what were here plans, selling small packets as a street vendor or delivering them to a (MR Big Up ). but the big Ups in Bimshire is so protected , we would need to bring in Scotland yard, the Mounties , the FBI to break down those doors early in the mornings.

    This continuous flow of drug importers to Barbados, and some being caught, you must wonder how many is getting past and must be often, because these people always carrying serious packets ,is this because they love coming to Barbados , don’t think much of our police , not much of our security or because as people think bajans are softies..
