St. Lucian flight attendant charged with bringing cocaine into Barbados remanded
The LIAT flight attendant charged with bringing cocaine into Barbados has been further remanded, this time until May 19. The alleged offender of LaClery, Castries, St Lucia was not required to answer the four drug charges which Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch read to her in the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court earlier this month.
The 33-year-old is charged with possession, intent to supply, trafficking and importing the five kilogrammes of the drugs and another count of possession of 1.3 grammes of cannabis.
She was interviewed by personnel from the Drug Squad when she arrived here on April 26, and was subsequently referred to Customs where a search revealed the cocaine in her handbag. The marijuana was later found at her home in Barbados.
She was denied bail when she appeared in the District C Magistrates Court on April 29 and again on May 5 when she made her second court appearance.
