MEMBERS OF THE Drug Squad have arrested and charged Jamaican nationals Breanna Ann-Marie Brown, 19, and Joel Williams, 24, for a number of drug related offences.

The offences were allegedly committed at the Grantley Adams International Airport on Friday, September 15.

Brown and Williams were charged with unlawful possession of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to supply, trafficking of cannabis and importation of cannabis.

Williams and Brown arrived in Barbados by air on Friday, September 15, from Jamaica. Having cleared immigration, they proceeded to Customs where a search of their individual luggage was conducted.

During the search three plastic wrapped packages, and fifteen brown taped packages, all containing cannabis, were discovered concealed in false compartments in the suitcases of Brown and Williams respectively.

The two were subsequently handed over to the police, and were later charged for the offences.

Both accused appeared before Acting Magistrate Wayne Clarke in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on Saturday, September 16, and were remanded to prison.

They will reappear in the District ‘B’ Magistrates Court on September 19. (PR)
