A Portmore woman is to appear in court on Friday after allegedly being arrested with ganja as she attempted to board a flight to The Bahamas.

Thirty-six year-old Camille Clarke of Waterford, St Catherine, was nabbed by police personnel at the Norman Manley International Airport.

The Police say Clarke was about to board a flight to the Bahamas when Police sniffer dogs alerted lawmen to her luggage.

Clarke’s luggage was searched and the Police say 11 rectangular-shaped parcels were found containing ganja weighing nine-and-a-half pounds.

The Police say the estimated street value of the illicit drug is $43,000.

Clarke was subsequently charged for possession of ganja, dealing in ganja and taking steps to export ganja.

She is scheduled to appear in the Half-Way Tree Parish Court on Friday.
