Trinidadian on cocaine charges

Trinidadian national Dexter Taylor is expected to appear in the District A Magistrates court today on several drug charges.

Taylor, 54, arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday, where he was interviewed by police after clearing immigration. He was subsequently referred to Customs Officers who searched his luggage and discovered three packages of cocaine in false compartments in a haversack he was carrying.

Taylor was later arrested and formally charged with possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply, trafficking cocaine and importation of cocaine.

    But Rawle you really think that the police are going to come out and tell “JOHN PUBLIC” what they investigations revealed, that is the reason why he and others are being held so frequently at “GAIA”, on the information gathered from others in custody.

    Makes one wonder. BDS got to get to the root of this drug problem. Got to be more than just the place flooded with persons from over and away. WHERE IS THE BDS CONNECTION?????.

    In certain countries, his luggage would have been electronically tagged and using satellite tracking technology that would have led them directly to the Barbadian connection. Barbadians would have found out who the drug lord was. I guess somebody is being secretly protected. Now if he spills out information, It’s good night nurse for him either here or Trinidad and who knows where else internationally.

    Aha. My comment was posted then removed by Barbados Today It neither insulted nor incriminated anyone. That’s their style. I do not expect better Anyhow In my first comment I mentioned that in some well established and well equipped countries the luggage would have been secretly tagged and tracked to the contact and we would have known who is the local drug lord. Perhaps that individual was being protected. Anyway a noted Judhe, now retired said that if his bags were electronically he could have claimed that his luggage was tampered with and the drugs planted. So there you go.

    People is arrested ever so often at the airport with drugs , but you never hear evidence from the mules led to one of the big criminal arrested…Why because the big criminals are protected way above the law, from top to bottom is in on the criminal acts which goes on in barbados, but one day it will all come tumbling down……..
