Convicted Jamaican drug mules ordered to leave

Four Jamaican nationals have been ordered to leave the country, after they were convicted here on Wednesday of several drug offences.

They are 31-year-old Tamaro Denton, 25-year-old Rushane Smith, 44-year-old Rohan Campbell, and 36-year-old John Planter who were all nabbed on arrival at the Grantley Adams International Airport last Sunday.

The men were subsequently referred to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital where Denton passed out nine kilogrammes of cannabis in two packages; Smith, half a kilogramme in 23 packages; Campbell, a kilo of the illegal drug in 44 packages and Planter, two kilos in 59 packages.

They were later arrested and charged.

Appearing before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday, members of the quartet pleaded guilty to the drug offences.

Denton was ordered to pay $200 forthwith for possession and importation of cannabis, while Smith, Campbell, and Planter were each ordered to either pay $2,000 forthwith or face nine months in prison for possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of cannabis.

The fines were all paid and the four men handed over to immigration pending deportation.

    Not only the drug mules need to go the strippers too SICK OF JAMAICANS IN BARBADOS BEHAVIOUR!

    Photographed / fingerprinted and put on file. Our Caribbean neighbours most not continue to use BARBADOS as a drug city.
    We must make sure that BIM is not for the “taking”. Also put pressure on the BAJANS who support and prop-up this kind of thing.

    I think that the government of Jamaica should warned their citizens, not to take marijuana in another man country. , because they causing innocent people to get victimized. When it is legalized what will happened. ALL that will stop

    My opinion please….I think these countries should have an understanding, where there nationals committ an offence in another country,they will be process there,sentenced, but spend their jail time in their country….hence the burden and expenses will not be on us…the taxpayers… cost quite a penny to maintain prisoners.

    So you four and your homeland dons think that; because of our down grades our educated youth are so dumbfounded that they will be easy targets for your illicit trade. I should think not and they should be I guess more computer literate than most

    Great move by our courts let the criminals pay for each other, this lot subscribing to the ones inside…..
    One issue which concern me , is there a local/ international data base with fingerprints ,picture and criminal records , in other words all ( police stations , our airport and sea port ) in barbados would have minute access to this information, and intranet link internal and external, with this information been able to be access all around the region by law enforcement………
    Which means these four people unless they used fake documents , is grounded for years to come………………………………
    @, Alex , hail, hail , hope I am not interpreting (for the taking wrong) but i always say barbados is there for the taking ,but not by bajans…………..we are the guinea pigs for the region……….

    Long time the courts start deporting these people instead of we tax payers having to feed them for long periods of time

    I am glad they were caught and dealt with. But what does this day about us? Is the demand in BIM so high that they would go to any length to get drugs here?? hmmmmm.

    Good. Also close down the pole dancing clubs that I was shocked to hear about some 3 years ago: they attract drug lords and every evil imaginable: punters ready to pay these girls with what? Dirty money.
