You Don't Smuggle Drugs Into Jamaica

Sharon Jaddoo of Handsworth, a suburb of Birmingham, England, spent £440 for supplies -laundry soap, tea, oil, rice, toothpaste, etc.- that she packed in four barrels to send to her aunt in Jamaica. She also spent £370 to have it shipped. Jaddoo has sent such supplies before. But the last shipment was intercepted by customs officers, who ripped open every parcel looking for drugs.

Fiery mum-of-one Sharon is now £440 out of pocket – and wants it back.

She said: ‘‘How stupid can you be? Hasn’t anyone told them you don’t smuggle drugs into Jamaica, you smuggle drugs out of Jamaica?”

Sharon has already clashed with Swift Connections, the shipping company paid £370 to make the overseas delivery. It has made a £200 “goodwill” payment, but denies any responsibility.

There is no word on whether the shipment was insured, or whether insurance would cover damage by customs officials. Link -via Arbroath

I had the same experience trying to visit Amsterdam. When my friends and I arrived, they searched through all of our luggage and even got the drug dogs out. We all thought, "don't Americans go to Amsterdam to GET drugs?"
