A Jamaican born Canadian National has been remanded to the Richmond Hill Prison on drug related charges.
Steve Miller who has been in Grenada since August was remanded to the Richmond Hill Prison last Thursday by Chief Magistrate Tamera Gill on charges of possession and trafficking of a controlled Drug.
Sources told the Grenada Informer that a special operation carried out by members of the Drug Squad at the home of the accused man, who at the time was residing in Grand Anse, led to the confiscation of 2kilos of the banned drug cocaine.
During his brief session at the St George’s Number one Magistrate Court last Thursday, defense counsel Peter David raised the issue of bail citing that his client is a CARICOM national and therefore bail is not unheard of for holders of such titles.
David’s application did not get the favour of the court and Miller who was due to leave Grenada sometime in October was remanded to the prison until his next court date on Monday October 5th.
The drug allegedly seized in this operation carries a street value of $200,000.00 dollars. If convicted Miller can be fined five hundred thousand dollars or be sent to prison for as much as thirty years on both counts.
