The females, aged 16, 17 and 18, are from the communities of La Clery and Morne Fortune.

Sources say the teenagers were visiting an inmate at the detention facility at about 4 p.m. when they were searched. A quantity of marijuana and a box of match were discovered.

This is the third case in recent times in which persons have been arrested for attempting to smuggle drugs to inmates.

During the search, the officers discovered a quantity of plant material suspected to be cannabis in her side-bag. She was charged for possession of a controlled drug and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.

Sources alleged that Tisson attempted to throw six small parcels of marijuana over the perimeter fence of Bordelais Correctional Facility at about 12:15 p.m. on the same day he was arrested. However, he was spotted by prison officers. The perpetrator attempted to escape, dropping the drugs and his cell phone. However, he was caught and taken to the Dennery Police Station.

  5. Some of you who respond to comments on here I don't believe you have thought of your response. Comment such as there are no jobs so they resort to smuggling drugs into prison etc are damn right wrong. Where do you draw the line? Does unemployment mean I need to commit crimes? What are you going to say when people are rapped that the rapist couldn't get any action so it stands to reason that they rape?

    Think, think, think then think some more and then comment. It's sad that these young women have committed. A crime in the eyes of the law s of your country. But my hope is that they will learn from it and become better people we all make mistakes in our youth. I could write a book about stupid things I did as a young man growing up in london but I learnt some valuable lessons such as I am not owed a thing in life, if I want my life to work I need to make it what I want it to be etc.

    You should never condone criminal activity we want better for our young black men and women in this world because they deserve better.

  7. Fools. You can't beat the system all the time. If they are caught red-handed, their pictures should be shown in print (newspapers) and on the news.

    • There is due process and the presumption of innocence until proven innocent. IT's OUR RIGHT!

      Perhaps after they're charged, they will be published.

      RESPECT THE PROCESS AND PEOPLE"S RIGHT!

      • Kuh-Kuh-Nez,

        I know there is due process, but when CAUGHT RED-HANDED, to me it's a waste of time and money. You plead "not guilty", knowing you're guitly, then only to be found guilty at the end.

    • A conviction or guilty verdict on this case means they will have a police record and will have a hard time going overseas to improve themselves.

  12. Let's hope their arrest finally serves as a deterrent for others. The search parties at our detention facilities must be applauded.
