American Everett Kesua Daly, 39, will spend the next 18 months at Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds.
Daly today pleaded guilty to four drug related charges when he appeared at the District A Magistrates court.
Charges include possession of five kilogrammes of cannabis, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.
He was fined $80, 000 forthwith or 18 months in prison. The fine was not paid.
Daly arrived in Barbados from New York last Saturday. After clearing immigration and proceeding to Customs, a search of his suitcase revealed two shoe boxes containing a number of packages containing cannabis.
