JAMAICAN NATIONAL Tasha Gay Blake will spend the next 18 months at HMP Dodds.
Blake, 25, pleaded guilty to possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of a pound of cannabis when she appeared in the Oistins Magistrates Court today.
She was fined $10 000 forthwith on the charge of possession or 18 months in prison, but was unable to pay. She was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the other charges.
Blake arrived by air from Jamaica on Monday and was interviewed by members of the Drug Squad before being referred to Customs officials at the Grantley Adams International Airport. 
Her luggage was searched, but nothing illegal was found. After another interview by Drug Squad personnel, she handed over a number of pellets of cannabis which were hidden about her body. 
She was also referred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where she passed three packages containing pellets of cannabis which she had ingested.  (PR/SAT)
