Discovery of marijuana in a barrel leads to search of woman’s home and further discovery of cocaine; offender remanded


REAL NEWS: A 32-year-old woman has been remanded to His Majesty’s Prison after being charged with a second drug offence within the space of two weeks.  She may acquire bail in the High Court, however.

Kimmesha Latesha Hutchinson of Old Parham Road appeared before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court on Monday, May 8, on a charge of possession of 80 pounds of marijuana.

The Police also arrested and charged Hutchinson with possession of the illegal drug with intent to transfer; being concerned in the supplying of cannabis; importation of cannabis; and drug trafficking.

These offences reportedly occurred on April 26 at the Deep Water Harbour.

Allegations are that Hutchinson was in the United States recently, and she is believed to have shipped the barrel, which was in her name. When the woman went to clear it, the illegal drug was discovered among its contents.

As a result of that discovery, the Police later obtained a search warrant and went to her house, on April 27, to execute it; at that time, a quantity of cocaine was found.

She was arrested and charged for that offence and taken before the court about two weeks ago. At the time she was granted bail on that charge with a return date of June for her trial.

Reportedly the magistrate had queried why both matters were not brought to court on the same day since they were found about 24 hours apart.

  1. These Jamaicans with Antiguan passport love too much trouble. The US Embassy needs to stop giving them visa when these Jamaicans show up with Antigua passport. The US Embassy needs to realise it’s all a scheme on their part to get US Visa and this government in Antigua is very lax as to who can get a passport.

    • Ya sound so fucking bitter …. Antiguans in America doing the same fuckery…. it’s the streets…. politician’s do this too … shut to fuck up about Jamaicans

  2. Why haven’t you done this on all the other discovery? female name on barrel, easy target I guess.

  3. But when native antiguans apply for a passport the passport office gives them hell,when the antiguan passort is basically worthless,this island does not belong to native antiguans anymore,and the government officials are compicit in this situation

  4. You all, Antiguans, love chat shit about Jamaicans. And No one love breed up n give birth in a next man country (overseas) like Antiguans. You all behave like your innocent n worse.
