[www.inewsguyana.com] – Two St. Lucian Nationals, who are cousins were brought before the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court to answer to the offence of possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking after they were nabbed at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport with a quantity of cocaine concealed inside their vaginas.
Appearing before Magistrate Judy Latchman was 48 – year – old Andree Willy, a nail technician and 43 – year – old Chermisa Wheeler, a babysitter, both of St. Lucia.
They pleaded guilty to the offense. The court heard that on Wednesday November 18, 2015, Willy had in her possession 88 grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, while Wheeler had in her possession 298 grams of cocaine.
The Prosecution revealed that at about 08:45 hrs on the day in question, ranks from the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) were stationed at the CJIA, performing duties at the scanning machine, when they observed the two women, who were both outgoing passengers on a flight Caribbean Airlines Flight, destined for St. Lucia, acting in a suspicious manner.
They were taken into custody and transported to CANU Headquarters in Georgetown, where an X-Ray was conducted. Willy reportedly confessed that she had the alleged cocaine concealed inside of a female pleasure toy, and which was inserted inside of her.
Wheeler also reportedly admitted the same. When asked by Magistrate Latchman, why they committed such an act, Willy said she wanted to make some extra money, while Chermisa Wheeler revealed it was because she was possessed by the Devil.
Willy was sentenced to 48 months in prison with a fine of $79,000, while Wheeler was fined $268,000 and sentenced to 50 months in prison.
