Four Dash Valley, St George men, who are jointly charged with possession of a trafficable quantity of cannabis, were released on bail when they appeared in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this afternoon.
Tito Ricardo Knight, 35, Chad Shakille Durham, 22, Shamar Tevin Orlando Prescod, 25, and Tristan Mikail Seal, 26, were not required to plead to the offence as the matter is to be transferred to the jurisdiction of District ‘B’.
It was alleged that on January 15, 2018, the four men had in their possession two and a half pounds of the illegal drug valued at $5,000.
Knight and Prescod also face additional drug offences, which were allegedly committed on the same date. Knight is accused of possessing 80 grammes of cannabis, valued at $400, while Prescod was alleged to have 65 grammes of the drug.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick released the men on $5,000 bail each and ordered them to present themselves at the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court on January 18, 2018, at which time they would be allowed to enter a plea.
