      • Lol….wow what a comment truly pissed of I see. Someone had to take the Rap and this poor fellow did unfortunately. I liked your comment nonetheless Curious I can tell you spoke from the Heart, nothing wrong with that. Someone had to speak their mind obviously.

    • the amount of checks costoms have to endure daily from airport security yet still bags of cocaine just roll right through. costoms had nada to do with this!

  2. Shocking the number of foulmouthed, hateful and ignorant ‘people’ -local and water bangers- that my beautiful developing small island plays host to. Scary. Yikes!

  3. no he is from Jamaica naa just kidding they would be killing people to get the drugs. …u guys need to stop with the sarcastic remarks. ..Antigua is for antiguans Jamaica is for Jamaicans so get it right. ..them say they dont want federation but here in Antigua doing a bunch of shit don’t bring your criminal ways to peoples door step……

  4. This is 110% a set up – there is no way Colin did this. No way. Someone who is trafficking millions in cocaine would be rolling in dough – I guarantee you he was not.
    Someone needs to provide real justice for him !!

    • Don’t swear sweetheart. Wayyy more to this story than you know, when u foolish enough to charter a whole plane and your account nah reflect that automatically something nah add up!!

  5. U see that V.C.BIRD, plenty s… pass in and out of it. 99.9% of the times some greedy somebody that not satisfied, run their mouth,
