St Lucian nabbed with two kilos of cocaine

A 23-year-old St Lucian chef, who is accused of importing two kilogrammes of cocaine into Barbados valued at $100, 000, has been remanded to Dodds prison.

Johnelle Leeanne Pierre of Ti-Rocher, Micoud was arrested after clearing immigration at the Grantley Adams International Airport last Monday. She was subsequently charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cocaine, after a dog from the Canine Unit detected the drugs, which were found  in seven packages, concealed in a false compartment of her suitcase.

Pierre was not required to plead to the charges when she appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No. 1 District Magistrates’ Court where the prosecutor, Station Sergeant Neville Reid, objected to bail for the non-national for fear that she may abscond.

She was therefore remanded to prison until October 4.

    Supply and demand……If caught , them hear DODDS too sweet.
    The HEALTH DEPARTMENT must list the number of persons that is in the system with “Drug related illness and Mental Health” along with the AGE GROUP.
    SNORTING “COKE” and “SMOKING WEED” IS NOT LIKE TAKING A STROLL TO CHEFETTE…… IT COME WITH “SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES”.
    DOPE IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH.
