British police have been looking for the dealer who gave a young St. Lucian woman drugs to carry into the UK.
It is believed that Tadia Clement, 23, may have been given the cocaine to carry from Martinique into St. Lucia, by a St Lucian living in the French Department.
The drugs were then brought to Britain where a courier was waiting to pick up.
A police source in the UK revealed that a man from Britain of St. Lucian origins traveled to the island to set up the operation. Scotland Yard have been trying to locate this Mr. Big from the UK but so far have been unable to do so. He is British.
“Police have been trying to track down a man who gave his name as Poll Francis and lives in London. Police went to the address this individual gave but could not find him nor the address. No such name or address existed. This was well arranged to throw the police off and to mislead them,” said the police source. “He knew exactly what he was doing.”
Rumours have been circulating about the Mr. Big the police are looking for. According to another source he could be working as a postman or somewhere within the British civil service and lives in the West London area. A man fitting his description has been frequenting the island. He has family in the western part of St. Lucia, where he visits often.
“People must know who this man is but they are not willing to speak for fear of speaking out and getting themselves in trouble with the drug lords out there,” said another source close to the investigation. “Some people will go to great lengths to protect people like this. People are afraid to come out and say who the responsible parties are.”
Clement was sentenced to one year imprisonment and was fined £150. She will serve 10 months and could be released as early as March 2015.
