Jamaica Crime News, Montego Bay: The St. James Parish Court has deferred sentencing for Zharrin Simmons, the Bermudan born British woman who was nabbed at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay with more than 40 pounds of marijuana.
The 22-year-old tattoo artist of a London address in England, made a brief appearance before the St. James Parish Court on Tuesday, July 2 to face charges of possession of, dealing in and attempting to export ganja.
Sentencing was postponed on Tuesday as the court is awaiting the defendant’s criminal records as well as her antecedents.
She will remain behind bars until July 9.
According to reports, on May 28 this year about 4:30 p.m., Simmons was preparing to board a flight bound for Manchester, England when a sniffer dog alerted the police to a black suitcase she had checked in earlier.
During a search of the piece of luggage, 42 pounds of ganja was found. She was arrested and charged.
