Two women are each on $25,000 bail after appearing in court on cannabis charges.
They are Brianna Moesha Mapp, a 20-year-old vendor from St Christopher, Main Road, Christ Church, and Shonte Taitianna Clarke, a 22-year-old receptionist from Thompson Road, Wavell Avenue, Black Rock, St Michael.
Mapp is accused of possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking in, and importation of the drug; while Clarke is charged with trafficking in the illegal substance.
The offences were allegedly committed on December 17.
The drugs weighed 9.80 kilogrammes and had an estimated street value of $78,400.
Both women pleaded not guilty when they appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick at the District ‘B’ Magistrates’ Court located at St Joseph.
There were no objections to bail from prosecutor Station Sergeant Glenda Carter-Nicholls and the two secured their pre-trial liberty after their sureties were accepted by the court.
Mapp, who is represented by Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley, and Clarke, who has Andrew Willoughby as her legal counsel, are expected to reappear before the court on April 25, 2022.
