Share post:

A FORMER customs broker who is on bail for drug offences will appear in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court tomorrow to face fresh charges of a similar nature.

Forty-eight-year-old Joanne Cheeseman of 2nd Avenue Melvins, Black Rock, St Michael was arrested and charged by members of the Drug Squad with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of five pounds of cannabis.

According to police, on October 10 she went to the Bridgetown Port to clear a barrel of foodstuff.

Officials of the Customs and Excise Department searched the barrel and reportedly found eight cans of coffee containing a quantity of compressed cannabis. Cheeseman was detained and later charged.

Back in July, police said Cheeseman went to the port to clear an air compressor from Canada which was found to contain 37 pounds of compressed cannabis. When she appeared in court, she was placed on $50 000 bail with one surety. (PR/NB)
