Drug related charges for All Saints couple

A 49-year-old man and 33-year-old woman are expected to appear before the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court this morning on drug-related charges.

The Office of National Drug and Money Laundering Control Policy (ONDCP) intercepted the Dominican male and Antiguan female, both residents of All Saints, with cannabis during another successful counter-narcotics operation on Tuesday. They were detained and questioned.

A search warrant was subsequently executed on a residence in the Lindsey area where another quantity of cannabis was discovered.

The drugs carry a total weight of 90.9 lbs with an estimated wholesale value of E.C. $360,360.00. A cash amount of U.S. $1,315.00 and E.C. $6, 370.25 was also seized.

Yesterday, the ONDCP said the man was expected to be charged with two separate counts of possession of cannabis, being concerned in the supply of cannabis, drug trafficking and possession of cannabis with intent to transfer.
