Four Caribbean nationals nabbed with drugs

Two Jamaicans, a Grenadian and a Vincentian are to appear in court here today following recent drug seizures.

Elvis Touissant, a 42-year-old Grenadian national residing in St. Vincent and William Percival Browne, a 34-year-old Vincentian national, have been arrested and charged following the seizure of a drug shipment with over 400 pounds of cannabis in an operation on the beach at Derricks, St James on Monday night.

The two have been jointly charged with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of the 466.18 pounds of illegal drugs.

Following the drug seizure, which occurred on February 16 around 8.30 p.m., the men were also charged with entering Barbados other than at port of entry and disembarking without the consent of an Immigration Officer.

They are expected to appear in the Holetown/District E Court today.

In the meantime, two Jamaican nationals have been nabbed at the airport with drugs.

Natalee Ffrench [spelling given by police], a 28-year old Jamaican national, arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport by air on February 14 from Jamaica. She was interviewed by police and referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) where she subsequently passed out two pounds of cannabis she had ingested.

Another Jamaican national, Natalee Sasha Crooks, who arrived on the same flight, was also detained. The 24-year-old was interviewed by police and referred to the QEH where she subsequently passed out one pound of cannabis she had ingested.

Ffrench and Crooks are expected to appear at the District B Magistrates’ Court today.

    Why they think we need drugs, fine them, a whipping would be nice also and put them out of the island, cause locking them up we have to feed, clothe and give the health care.

    ‘Ffrench’, name given to police?? Can’t the police inspect their travel documents?

    Deport them immediately and banish them forever. We don’t need their sort here, enough problems as it is. Instead of dumping them in Dodds and feeding them for the next 20 years, invest the money at QEH so us mere mortals who abide by the law can have proper medical attention when we need it

    When we look at these incidents and the Myrie case, it causes us to wonder why should we allow these rat in our country. We never hear of Bajans detained in Jamaica for drugs and prostitution, so why allow them here.

    The issue here is that dealers peddle their drug where they know they have demand – the latter is Barbados’s problem in my view, especially as there are many locals cultivating drugs to meet demand but perhaps not to the same standard – a bit like eggs as I see it
