Jamaican nabbed at airport with drugs

Members of the Drug Squad have charged a 56-year-old Jamaican national, who was nabbed at the Grantley Adams International Airport last week, with a series of drug offences.

Sydney Sylvester Simpson is due to appear in the District B Magistrates’ Court here on Monday on charges of possession of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of two pounds of cannabis.

Simpson arrived by air on February 25, 2015 around 6.45 a.m. from Trinidad.

He was interviewed by police and referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he subsequently passed 132 packages of the illegal drug, weighing two pounds in total.
