The two, who are unrelated, checked in to flights destined to other Caribbean countries around 3:40 pm and were both held during pre-board screening.

They are 32-year-old Keneisha Powell of Sylvester Street in May Pen, Clarendon and Deon Elvey, a 48-year-old architect of Bonito Crescent in Manchester.

Both have been charged with possession of ganja, dealing in ganja, taking steps to export ganja and conspiracy to export ganja.

According to police reports, Powell checked-in to board a flight to Barbados and during a search at the security checkpoint police found that she had several parcels of ganja strapped to her body. The drug weighed about 2.25 pounds.

  1. Please people we don't want these criminals coming to our country that should be what you concerned yourselves with .... With drugs comes the crimes.... I think its kinda troubling they're choosing to come to our shores with their criminal activities

  2. idiots...................thats like taking ice to the eskimos

  3. Haaa Buddy! as an Architect you should have had more than one Exit in your Plan. Thats the Rule.

  4. No need to smuggle Jamaican ganja to Saint Lucia when the St. Vincent high-grade is readily available. What we need in St. Lucia are marijuana seeds from Jamaica and St. Vincent for "grafting" a new hybrid herb which shall be called the "Iyanolan Splif."
