Bridgetown Magistrate Douglas Frederick remanded a drug accused to Dodds until February 20 after he had no suitable surety to sign bail on his behalf.
It is alleged that Eric Astor Omar
Gibson of No. 308 11th Avenue, West Terrace Gardens, St James did acts preparatory for trafficking cannabis as well as traffic in the illegal drugs between February 5 and 7.
Gibson, who was represented by Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley and attorney-at-law Kadeisha Wickham, entered a not guilty plea to both charges when he appeared in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today.
The illegal substance weighed 37.3 kilogrammes and had a $149, 200 estimated street value.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Carrison Henry had no objections to bail but asked that the accused’s passport be handed over to the court.
However Lashley informed the magistrate that another court is in possession of the travel document as the accused had a pending charge there.
