first_imgClothes vendor Gavin Limerick of Lot 108 Durban Street, Werk-en-Rust, Georgetown appeared last week before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman on a charge of trafficking in narcotics.The 36-year-old denied that on September 15, 2018, while he was in the vicinity of First Avenue Bartica, Essequibo River, Region Seven, he had in his possession 38.6 grams of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.Facts presented to the court reveal that on September 15, three Policemen, acting on information received, carried out a search on the man’s person and belongings, and the ganja was found.Limerick’s attorney informed the court that the narcotics were not found on her client, but under a car parked on the ferry, five feet away from where her client was standing; and Limerick was not the only person standing in the vicinity where the suspected cannabis was found.The magistrate nonetheless refused to place Limerick on bail, and he was remanded.last_img
