Albouystown man remanded for narco-trafficking

Keaster King of Lot 56 James Street, Albouystown, was on Friday slapped with several narcotics-related charges when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The 29-year-old man, who is no stranger to the police, appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly and denied the charges which stated that on March 27, at his James Street home, he was found with eight grams of cannabis strapped to his waist.
King was also jointly charged for another matter, which stated on September 21, 2018, at Lot 2925 North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, the police unearthed a quantity of cannabis from his property.
After being questioned by police ranks, he claimed ownership and as such, he was arrested.
Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh objected to bail on the grounds that the defendant has a pending matter of similar nature in another court.
As a result, the unrepresented man was remanded to prison and will make his next court appearance on April 26, 2019, for the first charge and on April 18, 2019, for the second charge.
