Another Port worker charged

Members of the Drug Squad have formally charged a worker at the Bridgetown Port with three drug offences.

Cedric Roger McIntosh Howell, 51, of 2nd Avenue Sealy Land, Bank Hall, St. Michael faces charges of possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cannabis.

On Wednesday, he was reportedly observed by Port Authority security guards carrying a haversack. However, when challenged by the guards, he discarded the haversack and left the Port.

The haversack was retrieved and found to contain 20 pounds of cannabis.   Further investigations by the police led to his arrest.

Howell is to due to appear at the District A Magistrates Court on May 13, 2016.

Just last week, a  57-year-old SOL employee at the Bridgetown Port was granted bail in the amount of $10,000 after he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court  to answer three drug offences.

Frank Jefferson Wiltshire of Fitts Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael was employed as a bunker crewman. Members of the Drug Squad intercepted and searched a motor lorry he was driving and discovered 1.9 kilogrammes of cannabis.

    In a small capitalist greedy society where the poor are getting poorer–it’s going to get worst. A hungry mob is an angry mob.

    Folks, there was this belief that all the drugs and guns were coming in by drug runners on the coast: Consett Bay, Pile Bay, Carlise Bay………all the Bays. Some would even be coming in by jet skis; usually at the height of the tourist season. What was not known by the public, that the larger quantities of drugs were passing by them everyday while we drive, by trucks pulling containers from the port going to different “companies” throughout our islands.

    This Government in power is a joke Government with a Prime Minister that takes delight in saying that he is ignorant of certain things; that he does not listen to critics and that in effect he does not know what is going on at a certain level. So much nonsense is going in this country that I sometimes wonder if they do not want it so. I have always convinced myself that they want it the way it is. There are some people who are paid by the Public purse who are not providing leadership . vision or creative solutions and do not care about anything so ;long as their salaries are received monthly. All these people does do is think about that money

    Note to the Uninformed: Cameras have been installed at the Bridgetown Port for nearly 20 years now. The same cameras would have help in the surveillance of those who are doing foolishness. Ports are by nature hotbeds for pilferage and crime. What has happened in the Port is that some ex-cons and people with criminal records were employed there. Please note that LAWS are not enforced in this country because if that happens , certain people’s friends , sons and fraternal brothers would be touched and we cant have Mr X being arrested in Barbados and sent to prison , can we ? Certain things are ignored for the same reason. I posit that the Breathalyzer test has not come on stream in Barbados for that very same reason. When we reach the point as happens in the USA that don’t care who you are and you do something , you are jailed, BARBADOS will never move forward. The present Government has taken us backwards and that is why certain things are manifesting. It is time this Government resigns .
    Forward ever ; Backward never is the name of the song playing on the local radio station at this very moment. What a coincidence !!!
