Man remanded for cocaine in “Krazy Glue” container

A man who reportedly hid cocaine in a Krazy Glue container was on Friday remanded to prison when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts charged for trafficking in narcotics.
Dexter Cross appeared before Magistrate Leron Daly, who read the charge which stated that he had three grams of cocaine in his possession on March 15, 2019, while he was in the vicinity of Bourda Street, Georgetown.
After the charge was read to him, Cross explained to Senior Magistrate Leron Daly that he does not know whether he should plead guilty or not.
“Your worship I don’t even know what to say, but it wasn’t me own,” Cross said.
As such, a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf by the court after he denied ownership of the drug.
The court heard that on the day in question, the defendant was observed acting in a suspicious manner when he was subjected to a search by ranks of the City Constabulary.
During the search, the alleged cocaine was found stashed in his trouser pocket, concealed in a container.
The prosecution opposed bail citing the prevalence of the offence. The prosecution’s submission was subsequently upheld by the magistrate who remanded Cross to prison.
The matter will continue on April 12, 2019.
