Chef remanded for cocaine

Twenty-year-old student chef, Robert Clarke, of a Kingston address, who was recently charged with several offences in relation to the discovery of several pounds of cocaine upon arrival to Jamaican shores, was remanded in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.

Resident Magistrate Lorna Shelly-Williams has denied bail and ordered the accused to return to court on January 22.

Clarke, a student at the Heart Trust/NTA pursuing a career as a chef, left the island for Guyana in search of work. Upon arrival back to Jamaica two weeks later, he was found to have five pounds seven ounces of cocaine in a travelling bag he was carrying.

After being asked by airport officials if he was aware of what was in the travelling bag, he responded yes.

He is charged with possession of, dealing in, conspiracy to import, and importing of cocaine.
