3 women busted in the south with 6½ pounds of marijuana

Women moving several pounds of weed; it’s not a usual occurrence but that was the case down south on Friday afternoon. Punta Gorda police were tipped off by one of their own who saw Thomasia Rash entering a James Bus, on the Southern Highway, carrying bags believed to be used to transport drugs. The bus was intercepted in the area of Bella Vista Village where all passengers and their belongings were searched. Marbeya Rash was found with a pink bag that contained over six and a half pounds of suspected marijuana. She was arrested along with, Thomasia and Anna Martha Rash, who were travelling with her. The women were escorted to the Independence Police Station to be charged with Drug Trafficking.

    They thought it was dried senna leaves & were taking it to town to sell, everyone needs a New Year purge. Ladies…. seriously, don’t be suckers, rat out whomever set you up & if a man talked you into this, all three of you need to be flogged every day while you are in jail & maybe that will knock some sense into you..

    Brings up a question that may set some of you off. If these women are related to the Rash siblings who disappeared last year, did they or someone in that family lose a previous shipment & the children were taken in retaliation?

    The police office that tipped off the women, never got his share so that’s why he snitched.

    Too bad the girls got caught. You got to start the new year right, right?
