Woman who tries to take weed inside Belize Central Prison pleads guilty

Twenty-one year old Christy Ramclam, a resident of Tigris Street, was arraigned in the courtroom of Magistrate Leslie Hamilton today, where she was read a single charge of possession of a controlled drug.  She was found in possession of twelve grams of cannabis hidden between her legs.  According to Claudia Nicholas, a female warden at the Belize Central Prison, around noon on Thursday, Ramclam approached the search area at the entrance of the facility.  She had nothing to declare, however, upon being frisked by the officer a transparent plastic bag containing a sheet of toilet paper wrapped around twelve grams of cannabis was discovered.  Ramclam was visiting her boyfriend Anthony Carballo Jr., who is on remand for the murder of forty-eight-year-old Jerminie McNab.  The young mother appeared unrepresented and pleaded guilty to the charge.  A non-custodial sentence was subsequently imposed on the first time offender and she was fined five hundred dollars, to be paid in two installments of two hundred and fifty dollars by April thirtieth.  In default she will spend six months in prison.

    I wonder if this woman Christy Ramclam is related to the newly appointed CEO of Lands, Sharon Ramclam?
