Drugs Found with Rohan Omar Campbell of Jamaica

Campbell arrived in Antigua around 5:35pm on Thursday 6th February, 2020 aboard Caribbean Airline Flight #459 from Jamaica. He was denied entry into the country and was held at the Immigration Detention Center. While there, he was observed to be behaving in an unusual and suspicious manner.

This prompted Immigration Officers to carry out a search on the room he was occupying and they found thirty (30) small Cannabis pellets, tightly wrapped in transparent plastic among human faeces in a toilet bowl inside a bathroom.

The matter was brought to the attention of the police and he was arrested and taken into custody and later charged. The illegal substance has an estimated value of $2,490.

  1. This dont make sense….The plane ticket alone is almost $2000. Pure dunceness. Him should get a year in prison. Damn jackass lol

  2. The UK is deporting these people by the planeload; why is this corrupt ALP government still allowing them to come here without a visa?

  3. I hope he will be deported after complete his sentencing and not being seen on the streets of Antigua in less than 3 months.

  4. He MUST be deported the day his finishes his incarceration. Other Jamaicans must be embarrassed that such a low life making things bad for decent people. Enjoy Hotel 1735. The boys up there will know how to welcome him, I assure you. He’ll never want to come back to Antigua again.

  5. Poor, jobless and desperate will make people do silly things especially when several pairs of eyes are looking at you for sustenance.
