Crime — 30 May 2014 — by Kareem Clarke

Two persons, believed to be a mother and son, were arrested and charged for drug trafficking after police discovered 448.8 grams – or just short of a pound – of suspected cannabis yesterday near their house in Santa Cruz Village at Mile 21 on the Southern Highway.

Police said that while searching the residence at around 2:00 p.m., they found a black plastic bag containing 330.5 grams of suspected cannabis about 15 feet away from the house, and later came upon a “Malher” container with another 157.9 grams of suspected cannabis, which together totaled 448.4 grams.

As a result, Byro Madrid, 30, and Felicita Madrid, 54 – both of the same address – were arrested and charged for drug trafficking.
