Canadian deported

A Canadian visitor, who was fined $2,000 forthwith today with an alternative of nine months in jail for possessing cocaine, paid the money on the spot.

However, Joshua Lawrence Gosse, a computer engineer, who was staying at 134F South Point Estate, Atlantic Shores, was immediately taken away by an immigration Officer for deportation after he pleaded guilty to the charge before District ‘A’ Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

Gosse, 29, was nabbed with the drug earlier in the day.

    Good job guys. Keep up the vigilance.

    Lots of cocaine passes through that Grantley Adams International Airport and not all of it comes in on flights out of Jamaica.

    Then again, every Tom, Dick and Harry knows that.

    Great job to by our Barbadian friends.
    As a long time Canadian visitor to this fabulous place I find people like this embarrassing.
    So many come to Barbados – and other destinations – thinking it is a backward country lacking the sophistication to catch them doing something they surely cannot do at home.
    My only disappointment is that he was given a choice. I would have loved to see him spend at least 90 days at HMP Dodds before he was deported as well as the fine. If he didn’t pay the fine then a year would have been good.
    I do hope he is banned for life from entering the country.
