Eighteen year old, Parfait Harmonie resident, Mark Gravesande, was remanded to prison this morning after he was charged with being in possession of over one pound of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
The youth appeared before Magistrate Fabayo Azore, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, to answer to the charge of the possession of the illegal substance for the purpose of trafficking.
The youth explained to the Court that he was walking along Hadfield Street on May 8, when a man who he only knows as “Jermaine”, approached him and gave him a black plastic bag to take to another man.
He said he placed the plastic bag in his book bag and moments later he was stopped by Police ranks, who conducted a search and found the bag of marijuana in his book bag.
He was remanded to prison until the end of the month, when the matter will continue.
