    • He is an Antiguan! He comes from a good family and is a Customs Officer. Just goes to show crime can be committed from all walks of life. Hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

  4. Cuz dem a try hide it!!! That was suppose to be the headline!!! Customs officer charged in drug bust

  5. Every time I hear someone caught for importation of cannabis, I wonder if they are not aware of the fact that people can grow four plants for free here. And they can have 15 gram without being arrested. We therefore do not need importers of the plant. You can bring the seed if you want to plant a better one.

  6. Dammm despite of what drugs he may have been caught with this youth is a good father . He is Antiguan..A good youth , we sometimes make stupid mistakes. Hold your head up alli. I’m just sorry you got caught up in this mess
