A 60-year-old woman, identified as Rosemarie Addison, a cleaning attendant of Highgate, St Mary, is among three persons who have been arrested and charged with possession of ganja and dealing in ganja.

The charges stem from an incident in which the police allegedly seized five pounds of the drug during an operation in Boscobel, St Mary on Wednesday.

Also arrested and charged are 51-year-old Jerome Jackson, fisherman of Boscobel, and 65-year-old Errol Watson of Highgate.

According to the narcotics police, about 7:00 a.m., law enforcement personnel were in the Boscobel area, where a shack was searched and the illicit drug was allegedly found in the possession of the trio.

They are scheduled to appear before the St Mary Parish Court on February 15.
