  1. None of these fools learn from the king of drugs, Roger Khan who think he was the LAW. Sorry you run until till you run out your own shoes,,JAIL them ,,,,,,,

  2. These people and all future passengers should know by now the consequences for being caught with illegal drugs .They should be given the maximum sentence for their stupidity.

  3. the bermuda woman caught with 551gms of cocaine was sent away for 4 years and fined three times the street value of the drugs.

    let us see how many years these three would get and if the fines will be three times the street value of the cocaine they were involved with.

    brace for the inconsistency and double standard!

  4. Wow 20 lbs of drugs I think each of the 3 people should receiver 20 years in jail each with out parole
