3 Charged In JDF Drug Bust


The three men, including a Haitian, held in a drug bust off the coast of Westmoreland last week have been charged.

JDF Coast Guard took the men into custody after they were found in possession of 762 pounds of compressed ganja in a boat off the coast of White House.

Charged are: Haitian national 39-year-old Guy Robert Joseph, farmer of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti and Montpelier, Westmoreland; Orlando Sangster, 39 years old, fisherman of Barbary Hall, St. Elizabeth and 21-year-old Renaldo Seaton, labourer of Middle Quarters, St. Elizabeth both Jamaican National.

The three were charged with possession of ganja, dealing in ganja, taking steps preparatory to export ganja, use of conveyance and conspiracy.

Joseph was also charged with illegal entry, as investigations revealed he arrived in the island 10 years ago by boat, illegally.

They are scheduled to appear before the Westmorland Parish Court on Tuesday, May 15.

The estimated street value of the ganja is just over three million Jamaican dollars.
