A Jamaican man is now in custody after he reportedly expelled 45 pellets of ganja one day after he was refused entry into Barbados.

The Jamaica Constabulary Force’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says his identity is being withheld pending further investigations.

CCU reports that the man was searched by narcotics detectives before he boarded a flight destined for Barbados and no contraband was found.

However, the police say his actions aroused the suspicion of security personnel the following day after he was refused landing in Barbados and returned to Jamaica.

CCU says the police was alerted and the man questioned before he was taken to hospital where he reportedly expelled the 45 pellets of ganja.
