On Sunday 07th August, 2016, the Office of National Drug and Money Laundering Control Policy (ONDCP) conducted a counter-drug operation on an apartment complex in the Creekside area.
This resulted in the arrest of 27-year-old Junior Forde of Hodges Bay and 33-year-old Curtis Williams, both Vincentian nationals, and a seizure of three packages of hashish oil with a combined weight of 8lbs 6ozs.
The men have been charged with Possession of Hashish Oil, Possession with Intent to Supply Hashish Oil and Being Concerned in the Supply of Hashish Oil. They are expected to make a court appearance in the St. John’s Magistrate Court on Wednesday 10th August, 2016 to answer to these charges.
Additionally Mandella Spencer alias “Mel /Yankee” is being sought by the ONDCP in connection with the ongoing investigation. Spencer arrived at the complex during the operation where he was approached by officers who identified themselves and ordered him to stop.
Spencer refused to comply and began maneuvering recklessly, while he made good his escape. Several other tenants at and visitors to the complex were questioned, searched and subsequently released during the operation.
