Six containers loaded with a precursor to methamphetamine have been sitting at the Customs Department compound since March. The value of the chemical methylamine hydrochloride has been placed in the range of ten billion dollars. Tonight there is information that the department will not be pressing any charges against Vernon Cuthkelvin who was named as the importer of the substance which is used to manufacture meth, a highly addictive substance that has huge markets in the US. Cuthkelvin claims he did not order what has been found in the containers and as such the department will not be proceeding with legal action against him. The chemical, we are told, will be destroyed in the coming days. Cuthkelvin’s attorney, Lionel Welch, says that there was nothing further on the issue from his side. It is an important decision that may have very serious consequences, if an importer of illicit substances can simply use the excuse “I neva know” to avoid punitive damages or prison time.
