Just moments after a Guyanese farmer and a Venezuelan woman were charged in connection with the discovery of over 25 pounds of cocaine in a Pomeroon house, six other persons including four Colombians were slapped with drug trafficking charges linked to the same bust. They were all remanded to jail today.
The men, Yieson Sanchez, Jesus Amaya, Reinaldo Jaramillo, Willianton Reyes, Ian Matthias along with Troy Piper all stood before Chief Magistrate, Ann Mclennan and enter a pleas of not guilty to the offence of aiding in the trafficking of narcotics.
The particulars of the charge read that between the 1st September and 2nd January, 2018 at Grant Woodland, Pomeroon, the six aided Gavin Adams in the trafficking of 11.41 Kg of cocaine.
The Attorneys representing the six men told the Court that their clients had no knowledge of the cocaine being in the house.
But the CANU Prosecutor objected to bail, base on the fact that most of the men are not Guyanese and could easily leave the country if bail was granted.
Bail was denied and all of the accused were sent off to prison until next month.
