A Soesdyke woman faced multiple charges in Court today for escape from legal custody, possession of marijuana and sale of alcohol without a license.
Thirty-eight year old, Shanaz Mohammed of Back Road Soesdyke appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, before Acting Chief Magistrate, Sherdel Issacs and entered a plea of not guilty to the offenses.
The Court heard that on the 6th May, the accused had 487 grams of marijuana in her possession for the purpose of trafficking.
It was further alleged that on the same day, she was found selling alcohol without a license.
In an application for bail, her Attorney, Stanley Moore stressed there are nine other people living in the house where the marijuana was found.
The Police Prosecutor requested that the accused be remanded since she had previously escaped from custody.
The Court was also told that the marijuana was found stashed behind a freezer in the house and it was the woman who claimed ownership.
While bail was granted on two of the charges, the accused was remanded on a third charge. She will return to Court later this month.
