Canadian National sentenced to EIGHT YEARS behind bars

A Canadian national caught at the Maurice Bishop International Airport with ten pounds of cocaine hidden in his suitcase in January of this year, has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Chief Magistrate Tamera Gill last Thursday handed down sentence on Michael Davis after he was found guilty of possession and trafficking some ten pounds of Cocaine out of Grenada.

 According to information circulating at the time, Davis was caught by members of the drug squad moments before he boarded a flight out of Grenada.  

 Sources told the Informer, given his suspicious action; the lawmen conducted a search of his luggage and found the drug hidden in a special compartment inside his suitcase.

Davis pleaded not guilty to the charges claiming that he was not aware of the content of the suitcase he was carrying. He said it was given to him during his short vacation in Grenada. That alibi did not stand the test of time, and Davis was found guilty on both charges for which he had appeared in court, namely possession and trafficking.

 On the charge of possession, Davis was sentenced to three years in prison while on the charge of trafficking, he was sentenced to five years in prison, a total of eight years, however given the fact that both charges would be running concurrently, Davis would only serve five years in prison.
