He has been identified as 58-year-old Collin Campbell, otherwise called ‘Fudge’, a truck driver of Toronto, Canada.

After being interviewed in the presence of his attorney on Friday January 5, Campbell was charged with the offences of possession of cocaine, dealing in cocaine, attempting to export cocaine and conspiracy.

He is to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish court on Wednesday, January 10.
