4 HELD IN OVER  EC$1/2M DRUG BUST

Three men and one woman were expected to appear at the St. George’s Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday morning, in connection with the largest seizure of compressed marijuana confiscated by local law enforcement officers for the year thus far.

Donnetta Prime and Shondel McIntosh of Carriacou together with Tobago National, Joseph Rankisson and Vincentian, Akeem Yorke were nabbed at about 6 am on Sunday in a house in Beyleau where 192 lbs of compressed marijuana were discovered.  The illegal herb with a street value of four hundred and thirty-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety two Eastern Caribbean dollars ($ 500,000.00) were tightly wrapped in six bags which contained 14 packages.  

They were each slapped with two charges—possession of a controlled drug and possession of a controlled drug with the intent to supply.  On Monday a party from the Drug Squad arrived on the island to further investigate the discovery of the illegal herbs. 

A truck owned by McIntosh bearing the registration number –P 3894 was also taken by lawmen and up to Tuesday remained under police supervision.  The two nationals and two foreigners were taken to the mainland at about 7:30 on Tuesday morning aboard the Coast Guard vessel.

The four appeared before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill on Wednesday, prosecution indicated that they would be proceeding indictably on all charges namely possesion of a controlled drug and trafficing on a controlled drug. All three men were denied bail however, bail was granted to Donetta Prime in the sum of $100,000.00 and two sureties she was ordered to surrender all travel documents and to report to the Carriacou Police Station between the hours of 6am and 6pm. They are expected to be back in court on the 14th of July  for mention and on the 20th for possible commencement of trial.
