Trinidadian pleads guilty to drug charges

courtA 26-year-old administrative assistant from Trinidad who was remanded after appearing in a Bridgetown court last Friday afternoon on four drug charges, has pleaded guilty to all of them.

Jornella Banyelle Boland of #21 Buena Vista Gardens, Arima, first went before Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on August 11. She was not required to plead at the time to possession, trafficking, intent to supply and importing two kilogrammes of cocaine.

Frederick transferred the matter to District ‘B’ Magistrates Court where Boland appeared Wednesday morning before Magistrate Laurie-Ann Smith-Bovell.

The woman was held at Grantley Adams International Airport after the illegal drug was found in the lining of her luggage.

Today, Boland told the court that a man with whom she was staying in Trinidad had asked her to bring the suitcase here. She will return to court on August 29 for sentencing.

Sergeant Wendell Greenidge prosecuted the case while attorney-at-law Kim Sealy appeared on Boland’s behalf.
