Teen held with drugs aboard the Jolly Roger

Andre Jamaal Clarke was today ordered to pay a fine $2,000, after he was held on board the Jolly Roger in the wee hours of this morning with cannabis.

The 18-year-old of Scarborough, Christ Church, was charged with possession, possession with intent to supply, and trafficking of cannabis in the territorial waters of Barbados.

According to the facts read by police prosecutor Theodore McClean, the unemployed teen entered the boat’s bathroom with a friend, but the duo quickly exited when they saw three security officers there.

They were stopped and during a search, a plastic bag dropped out of Clarke’s pants.

It contained 64 wax paper wrappings each containing vegetable matter suspected to be cannabis.

The coast guard was summoned and Clarke was removed from the vessel and handed over to police.

The drug weighed 20 grammes and carried a street value of $100.

Appearing before District “A” Court Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today, Alleyne pleaded guilty to the three charges.

He was convicted of the charge of possession of cannabis and ordered to pay the $2,000 fine within one month or face three months in jail.

Alleyne, who was reprimanded and discharged on the other charges, returns to court on July 22, 2016 to present his receipt.

    It is deplorable how people who ought to know better comment on social media in puerile ways. Yes the young man has made a mistake, no different than most of us, but before we inundate this blog with words of encourage we shortsightedly resort to words of condemnation.

    It is deplorable how people who ought to know better comment on social media in puerile ways, and think that it is acceptable to do so. Yes the young man has made a mistake, no different than most of us, but before we inundate this blog with words of encouragement, we shortsightedly resort to words of condemnation. And who knows, maybe sticking his tongue out is an idiosyncratic way for this young man to relieve stress?

      One obviously has to be tunnel vision focused, when all he/she can offer is condemnation rather than practical suggestions in an attempt to address some of the societal social ills. This is and has always been my aim and objective since I’ve being on this blog, and the day I cease to carry out this personal mandate is the day I stop blogging here.

    If you got weed to smoke, smoke your weed at home

    If you got weed to sell, sell it at home

    You know what it is to bundle up weed, travel to a popdown boat ride, gear up to smoke it and then realize you don’t have a lighter, then the police down hand in you

    Look, leave home the weed, smoke what you got to smoke at you and everybody will be happy

    @Mark Fenty!!! You Said, Quote “”Yes the young man has made a mistake, no different than most of us, but before we inundate this blog with words of encourage we shortsightedly resort to words of condemnation.””
    First off “Sir” that was no mistake, that was downright Stupidity, why would he carry POT onto the Jolly Roger, i dont go on the Jolly Roger when i am in Barbados, because i know that it is being watched by Eagles Eyes, because of the Reputation it has, he lives there every day, and you can’t tell me that he cannot think similarly, NO!!! HE is Stupid and needs to Go to Dodds not for having POT, but for being STUPID. and secondly, what would you like us to encourage him to do, sell more POT ???

    @ Rawle Maycock!!!! you asked “Why only target the boat rides?” they don’t only Target the Boat Rides, but that Jolly Roger has been a BIG drug Den ever since it came back to Barbados, and everyone “Except That FOOL” knows that.
    I don’t really know why anyone even goes on that Boat anymore, there has even been a Murder of someone who was abiut to Board that boat, about a week or so ago.
