The Director of Public Prosecutions has determined that all drug charges against Charles Herbert should be dropped on the grounds of a lack of evidence.
However, she has recommended that Christopher Glen Rogers and Walter Prescod will face a judge and jury in connection with a drug bust at the Bridgetown Port in July 2018.
The three accused were jointly charged with possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation of 267 pounds or 121.4 kilogrammes of cannabis with an estimated street value of $ 534,160.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick who heard the submissions made by the prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent Trevor Blackman, is still to make a decision on the DPP’s recommendation in relation to Rogers and Prescod.
Herbert and Rogers are being represented by Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim while attorney-at-law Verla DePeiza is the legal counsel for Prescod.
