A 23-year-old Guyanese woman was last Thursday arrested at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) after a quantity of ganja was reportedly found in her luggage.
According to a report published in the Jamaica Observer, the police last evening reported that Michelle Ann Bamfield otherwise called Blacka, of Georgetown, Guyana arrived at the NMIA about 4:30 pm and attempted to board a flight.

Bamfield, who was charged with Breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act, is scheduled to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Thursday.
