St Lucian woman caught with $100,000 worth of cocaine

A 23-year-old St Lucian woman is due to appear in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court here today after she was nabbed on arrival at  the Grantley Adams International Airport on Monday with two kilogrammes of cocaine, valued at $100,000.

Johnelle Leeanne Pierre now faces four charges of possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of the illegal drug, which was detected in her luggage by a police dog from the Canine Unit.

A subsequent search by customs officials revealed seven black packages, each containing cocaine, concealed in false side compartments of her suitcase.

As a result, Pierre was arrested and charged with the offences.

    again the questions that begs to be asked are…. why the police did not follow her to see who she was going to supply the drugs too??????? Are you also telling me that we can’t get this woman to divulge the names of person(s) she was “working” with or for???????…..SERIOUS!!!!!!

      It may lead to a “prominent” person in society and then it will be more difficult to make the seizure go away

      David F.Cabral I have been asking that same identicle question for years but have come to the realization that RBPF is a very amateur organisation who is not a 2017 police organisation more like 1917.Police organisations around the world go after the bigger fish through smart detective work like squeezing smuggglers for info and basing sentences on suspects cooperation with police but then again we talking about only wanting to catch small fish they want nothing to do with big fish in Barbados.

      you do realise that someone has to come claim it first to be arrested,if your name was on that package and you never claimed it,when police for you and you say that you were never expecting a package,do you think they can arrest you,of if its sent in the name of a large company but no one claims it,what you gun,shut down the company,stupseee

    We need to see these drugs being destroyed in public instead of being held as “evidence”. My theory ….it may still reach the intended recipient. Food for thought. #corruption#whowatchingthewatchman?

      Dennis Connell, I feel in cases like this its more than the paper. Sometimes the shipper is the one who alerts the authorities. You see its all about the supply and demand.. Supplier gets paid to supply the dope if it is stopped midway the demand goes up and the supplier is guaranteed another order at a higher price. I always feel there is some kind of skullduggery in the drug world.. Tricks and trade

    Something is missing from this story,who would trust a 23 old woman with drugs worth so much,and why would they put such valuable drugs in the false bottom of the suitcase, knowing that the canine unit is always around?
    There are more questions than answers,now she has a drug record for risking her entire future for participating in illegal activity,when will these young girls ever learn?

    I notice more and more “COKE” coming onto Barbados , is there such a demand, or the “WEED” ain’t strong enough for you fellas now so you need to step up a notch.

    Once those drugs were detected , the mule should have been allowed to exit the cutoms Hall with Drug Detectives in place outside in the receiving are waiting to see who was meeting her and followed if properly organized.In that way arrest could be carried out.I am sure this woman was warned before leaving. Hee place that under no circumstance was she suppose to call any names.
