$49,000 Drug Bust in St Andrew

  • Written by  The Grenada Informer

He was expected to learn his fate this Friday when he returned before the Grenville Magistrate Court from the Richmond Hill Prison, for sentencing in a drug trafficking matter.

The accused Mikel Milkson of Good Hope St George’s was apprehended in Pearls last weekend while in a car- registration number PX 150 driven by one Gavi Patrice. 

Patrice was charged with driving a motor vehicle while not being the holder of a valid driver’s license, to which he pleaded guilty. For this offense he was fined five hundred dollars, which he must pay in one month or serve two months at Her Majesty’s Prison. He was also charged with drug trafficking but pleaded not guilty claiming through his attorney that he had only given his co-accused a ride. The drug trafficking charge was subsequently dismissed. One other male passenger in the car Brent Morris was also charged with drug trafficking but he also pleaded not guilty and the charge was also dismissed.

 According to the prosecutor, the three accused men were apprehended by police in Pearls while in their car and a search of the vehicle revealed the drugs, which amounted to 22 lbs. of cannabis, and carries a street value of forty-nine thousand dollars. Milkson claimed ownership of the drugs, which was close to him on the backseat of the vehicle. 

According to the prosecutor, Milkson had been fined ten thousand and twenty thousand dollars separately in 2008 in two separate courts for offenses of a similar nature. He also has two pending drug-related matters in St George’s the prosecutor told the court.

 He was charged under the proceeds of the crime act and therefore the magistrate would like some more information about the accused, and that is whether he has assets. This she believes would guide her before sentence is passed.

 All the accused men were represented by attorney-at- law, Richie Maitland.

The car was impounded during the police operation.
