Jamaican Cop Caught with Drugs in Florida to Be Sentenced in July

Shelian Allen, the Jamaican cop, caught trying to smuggle drugs into the United States, will have her fate decided in July.

Allen was scheduled to be sentenced in June, but the sentencing hearing was postponed until July 27 in a federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In February, the 42-year-old was caught smuggling cocaine into the United States, some of which were found in her vagina and stomach.

Allen faces up to 40 years in federal prison, according to a release from the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.

Allen was suspended from the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) following her arrest in Florida in February relating to lottery scamming and drug trafficking offences.

Regarding the drug-related charges, the release said Allen admitted that on February 3, she arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on a flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica.

An inspection by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) revealed that “Allen had a package of cocaine inside her vagina and a package of cocaine inside each of her bra cups,” the release stated.

Additionally, Allen had 90 pellets of packaged cocaine inside her stomach.

The Jamaican law enforcer was transported to a hospital, where she expelled the 90 pellets she had swallowed.

“In total, Allen had over 1,000 grams of cocaine on or inside her body when she entered the United States: about 200 in her vagina, about 143 grams in her bra, and about 690 grams inside her stomach,” disclosed the US Attorney’s Office.

Allen, who resides in Stonebook Vista, Trelawny, is an 18-year veteran of the JCF.

According to court documents, the Jamaican policewoman has also been accused of leading a lottery scamming organisation that fleeced millions from unsuspecting victims.
