Narco accused granted bail
Sherwin Garraway, a sugarcane harvester of Lot 409 Caneville, East Bank Demerara, is accused of having six grams of cannabis in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.
He subsequently admitted to the charge which was read by (Ag) Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
However, the Magistrate entered a not guilty plea for the accused after he refuted the claims of the police.
Garraway told the court that the police arrested him while he was on “the road looking to buy some food.”
“The police stop me and went behind a stand, then they show me a packet and tell me is me own. I didn’t have it with me.”
The prosecution did not object to what the accused had to say and he was therefore released on $50,000 bail. Garraway is scheduled to make his next court appearance on October 2.
