She was referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where a package of cocaine was retrieved from her vagina, and later passed out 22 packages containing cocaine weighing 1kg which she had ingested.

Members of the Drug Squad charged Echteld with possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply cannabis, trafficking cannabis, importation of cannabis, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply cocaine, trafficking cocaine and importation of cocaine.

    Either the drug mules are deaf, ears compressed with wax or they cannot read. The only money the idiot is going to make is in Dodds City. Make an example of them and tattoo their foreheads: Cannabis, Marijuana, Cocaine or any form of illegal substance is ILLEGAL in Barbados.

    The issue how these drug mules load themselves up, then not be checked at the departing Airport, and would make you feel that from airport to airport they is collusion, they are all in it together.

    The whole thing is organize corruption you never hear of the mules giving info to our Barbados police as to who is the Mr Big the drug is imported for, this mean that Mr ,Big is protected although our police is catching the odd person as if this is meant to be, its all so easy…..
