Teen remanded on drug charges

Screen shot 2014-05-23 at 9.40.31 PMAn outgoing passenger on a LIAT flight destined for Barbados last Wednesday was today remanded to prison after custom anti-narcotics officials busted her with over 5 kilograms of marijuana and over 2 kilograms of cocaine was found in a package of pack.

Latoya Crawford 19, pleaded not guilty to the charges when she appeared before chief magistrate Priya Beharry in the Georgetown magistrate court.

CANU prosecutor Oswald Messiah told the court that Crawford was carrying a suitcase and a haversack when she checked in at the Ogle airport. He said the suitcase was checked and nothing of value was found. He told the court that one of the packets was checked and it revealed what appeared to be cannabis. The woman was escorted to CANU’s headquarters where further tests were done on the other contents in the suitcase where cocaine was discovered.

The young woman claimed that Mark Mohabir who a wanted bulletin was issued for by CANU gave the drugs to her. Mohabir is said to be from Cooper street Albouystown. The woman reportedly told the officials that she was promised 15 hundred US upon delivery of the items in Barbados. Crawford was given an initial payment of 50,000 dollars. The woman was remanded to prison until May 27th.

Meanwhile, CANU is reporting that these two officers are no longer employed with the agency and are not authorized to conduct any business or act on behalf of the unit. They are Kurt Sunich and Glezen Roberts.

    Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
    wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
