No bail for LIAT pilot

Social Share

LIAT is to carry out an internal probe into how  one of its pilots has ended up on marijuana smuggling charges in Barbados.
The pilot, Keith Richard Otway Allen, 34, of St Vincent, was declared a flight risk, denied bail and remanded to prison yesterday when he appeared before the District “F” Magistrates’ Court on four charges.
Allen pleaded not guilty to drug possession, intent to supply, importation and trafficking, and was remanded to HMP Dodds despite strong objection by defence attorney Keith Robertson.
Allen, who has a residence at Coverley, Christ Church, arrived in Barbados on a LIAT flight from St Vincent around 7:40 p.m. on Wednesday and was arrested by officers from the Drug Squad who allegedly found two packages of marijuana in his pilot’s bag and another six packages in a pulley he was carrying. He was wearing his pilot’s uniform but was not on duty at the time. (DP)
