Jamaican nationals held with weed

Members of the Drug Squad have arrested and charged two Jamaican nationals for a number of drug-related offences.

Nineteen-year-old Breanna Ann-Marie Brown and 24-year-old Joel Williams have been charged with unlawful possession of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to supply, trafficking of cannabis and importation of cannabis.

Brown and Williams arrived on the island by air on Friday, September 15 from Jamaica. Having cleared immigration, they proceeded to customs where a search of their individual luggage was conducted. During the search three plastic wrapped packages and 15 brown taped packages, all containing cannabis were discovered concealed in false compartments in their suitcases.

Both accused appeared before Acting Magistrate Wayne Clarke in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on Saturday and were remanded to prison to reappear in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court on September 19.

    Barbados is experiencing an ever increasing fiscal deficit.The high price-gauging-cost of living in Barbados is deplorable! Jamaicans ought to be sending us money instead of drugs…Why weren’t the drugs discovered and seized by customs officers in Jamaica? Why are Barbadian taxpayers obliged to feed, clothe, shelter and pay medical and legal expenses for non-national criminals within our prison when in true and fact the illegal acts originated outside of Barbados jurisdiction?????

      You are absolutely correct! Deport them as well as their drugs back to Jamaica.. Barbadian taxpayers can no longer afford to supply non-national drug traffickers with food, clothing and shelter at Dodds, nor can taxpayers afford to pay for their legal fees, their medical expenses and their one-way airfare back to Jamaica…….Miss P

    Make them clear up some of the bush all over the place .Some hard labor .then Ship them back did their stash. A simple deportation is not enough because others will be empowered to try knowing that if caught they would only face deportation whereas if fortunate enough to escape detection it would have been worth the gamble.

    This should apply to all those who are caught with illegal drugs at our ports of entry. They like weed, so I will go with @BobotheCLown: Make them clear up some of the bush all over the place. Some hard labor is correct.
    For non-nationals, I will go again with @BobotheCLown plus @jrsmith: Add them to the local and international criminal data base if there is this technology in Barbados, then deport them.
    This island has become a breeding ground for all kinds of illegal activities for non-nationals and now is being extending to the natives of this land. so we have to change our whole approach, get serious and start to dish out some stiff penalties.
