PORT PURCELL, Tortola, VI- A national of St Vincent and the Grenadines residing at Parham Town, Tortola, was arrested and charged on July 16, 2021, after a package containing marijuana was allegedly shipped to him.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, customs officials had reported that there was a suspicious package at Port Purcell with suspected cannabis.

The package had allegedly arrived on a vessel named Queen Elizabeth II. It is unclear to our newsroom at this time where the vessel had arrived from.

The said 'suspicious' package, along with other packages, was allegedly addressed to Zawdie Daniel and opened in his presence.

Our newsroom was told that 2 plastic wrapped packages were found in a crocus bag that contained general purpose feed. What appeared to be a green vegetable matter, suspected to be cannabis was found in the plastic wrapped packages.

Daniel was arrested on suspicion of Importation of Controlled Drug. 

The drugs were said to weigh 1.42kg.

According to reports, it was also discovered that Daniels had overstayed his landing permit and was also charged for that offence.

    It was medicine for COVID 19. The guy on the radio station said it was good for the disease. He was going to the beach later to get the sunlight. On a serious note You left your country to better yourself and may end up in jail and deported for what?

        You are offended because a person from the Island is called an island person
        This type of stupidity is why we are burying persons who did not have to die and more will die and are dying because nothing can fix stupid.

    How long these people who say that this place is a Christian society that follow God instill such law that go against the laws of God. If you imprisoned a person for God's creation what are you really saying to God

      For marijuana? A plant? That is proofing to have major benefits in our medical system? Wow. So what about those who have killed? You should probably delete this nonsensical comment. It's not hard to tell you're someone who talks because you simply have a mouth.

    Man getting it one way or another. Locking them up is more harmful what’s the point. We all about espousing vaccine facts & allow last generation’s racially motivated lies about a healing plant to justify our neighbors incarceration. Ignore the research.

    Smoke the tobacco and drink up those beers at the pub.

    Can’t take a thing seriously from the top until they start acting as if they have common sense and are not following the script of oppressors.
