Holder to answer for over $100,000 worth of drugs

A 22-year-old St Michael man, who was being sought by police since October in connection with $112,000 worth of cannabis, has finally been nabbed.

On Sunday, members of the Drug Squad arrested and formally charged Wrensford Ricardo Holder, of Kew Road, Bank Hall, with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of 14 kilogrammes of the illegal drug.

Police say Holder arrived here by air from Jamaica on October 3 and having cleared immigration, proceeded to customs. His luggage was placed on the counter as requested by custom officers, but before that search could be conducted, he immediately ran off, making good his escape.

The matter was reported to police, and investigations revealed 16 transparent packages of cannabis in his two suitcases.

After evading lawmen for two months, Holder was caught on Sunday.

Yesterday, he appeared before Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch in the District ‘C’ Magistrates’ Court and was remanded to prison. He is due to appear in the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

    I am noticing that Barbados Today is not showing the picture of the accused.

    This is good, an accused person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. They should not be paraded across newspaper front pages damaging their reputations.

    If found guilty of a charge in a court of law then that is a different matter.
