Jamaica: JDF Soldiers Charged In Big Ganja Bust

The two Jamaica Defence Force soldiers held earlier this month with more than 1500 pounds of ganja after a shootout with the police in St Elizabeth have now been charged. 

They are Roan Mendez, 39, of a Kingston 10 address and Robert Smith, 38, from Balaclava in St Elizabeth.

The soldiers, both corporals, are scheduled to appear in the St Elizabeth Parish Court on Friday.

They have each been charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition; shooting with intent; and possession of, dealing in and taking steps to export ganja.
