A 22-year-old man who told the court during his appearance that the Police bullied him into signing a caution statement was granted bail for narcotic trafficking.
Christopher Watts, of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, stood before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus and denied the charge that stated that on July 12, 2019 at North Ruimveldt, Georgetown he had 3.3 grams of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.
The prosecution’s case stated that a raid was carried out at Watts’ home and the cannabis was found in his room in a shoe box under his bed.
According to Prosecutor Shondel Daniels, Watts admitted to the offence in a caution statement and claimed that he took the cannabis home the day before it was found. However, Watts told the court that nothing was found during the search.
“They come by me and say that they want me for some robbery, they carry me to Brickdam, but they didn’t find nothing on me,” the defendant alleged.
He was released on $100,000 bail, and the case was scheduled to continue on July 29, 2019.
