53-year-old Fred McLaughlin from Bodden Town was charged yesterday with various offenses in connection with an incident at an East End resort in December involving the theft of cocaine from the beach.
In what was seen as a brazen day time robbery, the staff was threatened after cocaine washed up on the beach Christmas Eve. What was thought to originally be alone robber turns out to have been two men working in conjunction with one another to carry off the heist.
Multiple videos of the two men were circulated showing them taking off with the drugs. The other suspect, 35-year-old Marvin Grant was arrested almost immediately and has already appeared in court on the matter.
Police said McLaughlin was arrested on Tuesday, 9 January, and charged on Thursday, 11 January, with conspiracy to rob and conspiracy to supply controlled drugs.
