Shelian Allen, a Jamaican policewoman who was arrested and accused earlier this month after reportedly being found with cocaine while entering the US, has been indicted by a grand jury in South Florida.
The defendant is assumed innocent until proven guilty through an indictment, which contains allegations.
According to the indictment and a previously filed criminal complaint document, Miss Allen, 42, arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on February 3 on a flight from Montego Bay.
According to reports, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) discovered a package of cocaine inside a bodily cavity and a package of cocaine inside the policewoman’s brassiere during an inspection.
Miss Allen was allegedly said to be carrying 90 pellets of packed cocaine in her stomach.
Allen was taken to a detention center by CBP officers.
