TWO Canadian women were Monday sentenced in the St James Parish Court for breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.

They are: 22-year-old Mariah Holland, bartender and 23-year-old Jaques-Francoise Moukoury, enquiry officer, both of Toronto, Canada.

The constabulary's Corporate Communication Unit said Holland and Moukoury were arrested by members of the Narcotics Division at the Sangster International Airport on August 31, 2016 as they attempted to board a flight to Canada.

Holland was found in possession of three quart bottles with cocaine weighing six pounds, with an estimated street value of $3.4 million, while Moukoury was found in possession of three quart bottles with cocaine weighing four pounds, with an estimated street value of $2.2 million.

They were both sentenced to pay $1 million or serve nine months in prison for possession of cocaine, and $1.5 million or nine months' imprisonment for attempting to export cocaine, plus a three-year mandatory imprisonment term.
