Police have made a major drug burst in Cherry Hill, St. George’s – an area known for the use of the illegal substance.
A team of police officers from the Drug Squad and the Rapid Response Unit of the Royal Grenada Police Force, last week Thursday, confiscated three fine bags containing a large quantity of marijuana on a beach in the area.
The 105 pounds of drugs, with an estimated street value of $235,000.00, were taken in as soon as it was being landed by a fishing boat.
Myron Lett, a 30-year old fisherman who was allegedly receiving the marijuana was detained by the policemen engaged in the operation.
The lawmen immediately went after another man, 28-year old Shane Fletcher who was trying to escape with the boat.
The two fishermen were charged with possession of illegal drugs and trafficking and appeared before Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill at the St. George’s Number One Magistrate’s Court on Monday and were each granted bail in the sum of $120,000.00 with two sureties.
Magistrate Gill ordered the Cherry Hill residents to surrender all their travel documents, and to report to the Central Police Station on the Carenage every Monday and Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
The suspects are being represented by attorney-at-law, Peter David who has returned to private practice after deciding to quit the Tillman Thomas-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) government as its Minister of Tourism & Civil Aviation.
