Woman held with ganja at airport
Police officers at the Norman Manley International Airport arrested and charged 36-year-old Camille Clarke of Waterford, St Catherine, for breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act on Sunday.
Reports are that about 9:50 a.m., Clarke was about to board a flight to The Bahamas when police sniffer dogs alerted lawmen to her luggage. Consequently, Clarke's luggage was searched and 11 rectangular-shaped parcels were found containing ganja weighing nine and a half pounds. She was subsequently charged for possession of ganja, dealing in ganja, and taking steps to export ganja. The estimated street value of the illicit drug is $43,000.
Clarke is scheduled to appear in the Half-Way Tree Parish Court on Friday.
