4,100 cannabis plants were uprooted. During the eradication, 23 year old Hudson Augustin of Anse La Raye was arrested and charged for the offences of possession of controlled drug, cultivation of controlled drug and intent to supply a controlled drug.

Augustin appeared before the First District Court where he was fined EC$1,000.00 on the charge of possession, EC$1,000.00 on the charge of cultivation and EC$1,500.00 on the charge of intent to supply.
