(CNS): A couple arrested Tuesday on suspicion of drug dealing after they were stopped in a car on the Esterley Tibbetts Highway have been charged with several offences, including money laundering. The 35-year-old man from West Bay was charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine, possession, and possession with intent to supply cocaine and ganja, as well as money laundering.  The woman has also been charged with possession and supply of both drugs and money laundering.

Following a court appearance Thursday afternoon, the woman was bailed on strict conditions but the man has been remanded in custody until the couple return to court on 5 January. The police have not yet revealed the quantity of drugs taken from the couple during searches conducted when they were arrested.

    Dear Police, I appreciate your road blocks and see them as a necessary part of modern society but if you making all the effort to set up a road block, why not go one step further and actually ask for drivers license and vehicle insurance. And give the car a once over. Bald tyres and lights not working as a minimum.

    Have a few more officers on duty to issue $ fine tickets there and then – forget the “in the mail” nonsense.
    Ticket in hand = no excuse for “I never received it”.
    Take photos of the vehicle and driver. upload it to a database and tada.

    You get 30 days to pay the fine and get license and insurance in order plus whatever problem was.
    Fine cannot be settled without proof of current insurance and current license and requirements fixed.

    Only checking the licensing disc with a torch is doing a half job since it’s well known that some people are fiddling the DVL disc to make them look current.

    Besides the night road blocks which should be spot checking drivers, The road worthiness of cars can be done in broad daylight ~ walking around Fosters/Kirks/ALT/Camana Bay I see all sorts of offenses. Expired disc. No disc. No license plate. Bald tyres. Broken windscreens. Darkest tint.

    And oh while you at it can you stop the public transport & taxis once in a while. I don’t know how some of those vehicles are getting through road worthiness tests let alone driving tests.

    Thank you and happy new year.
