Bajan nabbed with drugs at Jamaica airport

KINGSTON, Jamaica — A 32-year-old Barbadian national was on Tuesday charged with breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act after he was held with ganja at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.

He is Troy Jackman, a technician, of Husbands Garden in Barbados.

Reports from the narcotics police are that about 2:15 p.m., the man checked in for an outgoing flight destined for Barbados and during security checks, his luggage was searched and ganja weighing approximately 6.3 pounds was found.

Police say the man will be interviewed in the presence of his attorney and is expected to be charged with possession of ganja, dealing in ganja and taking preparatory steps to the export ganja.

 He is scheduled to appear before the St Andrew Parish Court on Wednesday, January 25. (Jamaica Observer)

    Oh dear. I thought the flow was always in the other direction, given the onslaught the immigration authorities carry out against Jamaicans.
    What has the Bible said about motes in the eye?

    Make sure you wipe-out his bank account before you pack him back to BIM. Jail time no good.

    He is a Bajan, apparently. It is not just Jamaicans who are drug couriers.
