A Canadian man, who reportedly attempted to smuggle just more than seven pounds of cocaine out of the island last November, is likely to plead guilty to breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act when he reappears in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court today.

The accused, 55-year-old David Barnes, an upholsterer of Toronto, Canada was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, dealing in cocaine and attempting to export cocaine after the drugs was found in his luggage at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston.

According to a police report, on November 11, about 2:20 pm, Barnes checked into the airport to board a flight home when a drug-sniffing dog at the airport led authorities to one of his suitcases which allegedly had cocaine weighing more than seven pounds.

The Canadian was subsequently arrested and charge for the drugs, which is estimated to have a street value of $4 million.

When Barnes appeared in court Wednesday his Attorney Alicia Campbell told Parish Judge Vaughn Smith that her client was planning to take a certain course but that she needs to have further discussion with him.

He was subsequently remanded to return to court today.
