Police said they have charged two men in connection with a drug bust this week.
Kwame Adesima George, 34, from Guyana but residing in Plateau, Babonneau, and Nehemiah Nathan Louisy, 31, a St. Lucian living in Ciceron, Castries address were both arrested and charged for possession of controlled drugs and possession of controlled drug with intent to supply to another.
Police told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, at about 9:30 p.m., Drug Unit officers were on patrol along the Bexon/Odsan Highway when they observed a “suspiciously moving” blue Toyota Corolla travelling towards Castries.
The lawmen reportedly signaled the vehicle to stop, but the motor vehicle continued along the road. The officers pursued the vehicle and intercepted it at the Cul de Sac/Goodlands junction.
At the time of interception, there were two occupants – George and Louisy – on board the vehicle.
Two packages containing green plant material suspected to be cannabis were recovered during a search of the vehicle.
One of the parcels was reportedly wrapped with tape portraying the Colombian flag. The two parcels weighed about 2.41 pounds 1.2 kilos.
George and Louisy were subsequently arrested and charged.
