Starchild 'caught' with cocaine in curry packs

THE cocaine that radio DJ Starchild was arrested for was allegedly found in two blue jeans and two sweaters.

This is what was shown at the Arima First Court before magistrate Deborah Quintyne, when popular DJ and radio personality Marinus “Starchild” Ayers appeared for the possession of 1,457 grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

He was also charged with attempting to export illegal drugs.

The court was filled with onlookers who waited with bated breath to see who was the popular radio personality nabbed for drug trafficking last weekend.

Standing calmly, Starchild looked on as the arresting officer attached to the Organised Crime and Narcotic Unit (OCNU) went through the black and gold suitcase that contained two blue jeans and two sweaters that Starchild allegedly had when we was arrested on Saturday February 11, when he was about to board BW flight 526 to New York.

The magistrate was shown that one blue jeans had two plastic packets of cocaine powder.

The other jeans had one “lotus” icing sugar packet, and two “Chief” baking powder packets, filled with cocaine powder.

One sweater had three packets of Chief ground urdi with cocaine powder, while the other sweater had one pack of Chief ground channa with cocaine.

The drugs were allegedly found in an inner lining of the clothes. He was denied bail and advised to get an attorney when he appears again on February 16.

Starchild has been a DJ for many years after starting at the age of 16 years.

He was given the name Starchild by the then popular Rennie B, whom Ayers had emulated and adopted his DJ skills from.

Ayers later advanced his music career to become a radio DJ.

He worked at Radio Tamarind in Tobago and his last place of employment before his arrest was 104.7FM where he was the head DJ and talk show host.
