Five Canadian Nationals Arrested in Jamaica

Jamaica_Constabulary_Force_emblemFive Canadian nationals have found themselves on the wrong side of the law as with the help of sniffer dogs and strong narcotic enforcement, the suspects all females were arrested. Their names were not available at press time.

The venue was the Sangster’s International Airport in the second City, Montego Bay, … a world famous tourist destination

Reports are the women were preparing to board a flight to Canada when dogs trained to sniff out narcotic substances which are illegal in Jamaica, were discovered in their luggages. The five were arrested and charged accordingly.

Ironically, the Sangster’s International Airport is operated by a Canadian group.


We wish the suspects a fair trial and that justice will be served.

Suspects are considered innocent until found guilty … Jamaica has a top class justice

Our jails are not very comfortable … to put it mildly. There are no stars in this accommodation.
