Drug mules ordered to leave Babados

Four Jamaicans, convicted of several drug offences, have been ordered to leave Barbados.

The men have been identified as  31-year-old Tamaro Denton, 25-year-old Rushane Smith, 44-year-old Rohan Campbell, and 36-year-old John Planter.

They were arrested on arrival at the Grantley Adams International Airport last Sunday and taken to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Barbados Today reports that Denton passed out nine kilogrammes of cannabis in two packages; Smith, half a kilogramme in 23 packages; Campbell, a kilo of the illegal drug in 44 packages and Planter, two kilos in 59 packages.

They were later arrested and charged  and pleaded guilty to the drug offences.

Denton was ordered to pay $200 forthwith for possession and importation of cannabis, while Smith, Campbell, and Planter were each ordered to either pay $2,000 forthwith or face nine months in prison for possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of cannabis.

The fines were all paid and the four men handed over to immigration pending deportation.

    I agree, impose a reasonable fine and send them in their way. It is more costly to imprison someone for such a misdemeanor as opposed to ordering them out of the country and banned from legally reentering.
