An American musician who was caught with 66 pounds of marijuana at Manchester Airport has been jailed.

Jazz Orr, 24 from Los Angeles, claims that he was in debt  and needed quick cash when he accepted the offer of $3,000 for smuggling weed into the UK.      

On December 7 last year, Orr travelled from Los Angeles to Detroit and then onto Paris. From Paris he travelled to Manchester on December 11. 

He was then stopped at Manchester Airport with two large suitcases and a rucksack, containing 56 vacuum-sealed bags of marijuana. Orr later admitted ‘fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of cannabis’ and told officers about the cash he was offered. 

Orr also admitted he had packed the suitcases himself.
