A Bartica housewife has found herself facing multiple charges following the discovery of a quantity of marijuana and cocaine in her bedroom, but the woman claims she was just keeping an eye on the illegal items.
The 59-year-old woman told investigators that she was given the illegal drugs to keep at her home for someone else.
She was arrested early Saturday morning as Police investigators, acting on a tipoff, went to her Old Housing Scheme residence in Bartica and found the items stashed in the bedroom. The marijuana weighed 255 grams while the weight of the cocaine was given as 1450 grams.
The woman, whose name has not been releases, is currently assisting investigators with the probe, but she could find herself before a Magistrate early in the new week.
