Barbados: Saint Lucian remanded on drugs charges

Barbados Today:-A 23-year-old St Lucian chef, who is accused of importing two kilogrammes of cocaine into Barbados valued at $100, 000, has been remanded to Dodds prison.

Johnelle Leeanne Pierre of Ti-Rocher, Micoud was arrested after clearing immigration at the Grantley Adams International Airport last Monday. She was subsequently charged with possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cocaine, after a dog from the Canine Unit detected the drugs, which were found  in seven packages, concealed in a false compartment of her suitcase.

Pierre was not required to plead to the charges when she appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the No. 1 District Magistrates’ Court where the prosecutor, Station Sergeant Neville Reid, objected to bail for the non-national for fear that she may abscond.

She was therefore remanded to prison until October 4.

    She was working ,she should’ve just taken her time she would’ve gotten to where she wanted to be …. But you see greed is what make them do all of that . Two kids down and you’re going to jail I bet your family didn’t even know that’s what you went to do . Not trying to be judgemental but some of you’ll need to learn . But dats life you will be free one day and you will realize there’s no need to rush life .

    the sadness in this is that this 23 year old is not the boss, today the boss or bosses may be enjoying their comfortable beds,driving in their AC and the many luxurious.

    young people remember the creator in the days of your youth ,don’t fall for the fast dollars from secret societies ,drug dealers and corrupt

    If the boss is not taking that chance, nor will i. Love yourself more and don’t put your neck out for fast life. It’s not even worth it if she didn’t get caught something bad always follow

    Great. At least you tried but the devil left you stranded. That’s what he does and he knows when to strike. Best of luck in Bajan prison. By the time you come out, your daughter would have grown and gotten impregnated by the boss that sent you to Barbados.

    I’m not saying she did nor she didn’t but what if she didn’t know the drugs were in her suitcase. What if it was planted there by someone who works at the airport. How comes the drugs want decked in St Lucia by custom officers. Or did they let her pass and someone was supposed to take care of the second leg of her voyage and didn’t do their job? Just saying
