Eleanor Applewaithe, a seamstress from Kumaka, Region One, was yesterday remanded to prison for allegedly having one gram of cocaine in her possession – suspected to be used for the purpose of trafficking.
The allegation is that Applewaithe was arrested by police officers after the cocaine was found hidden at a clothing stall which she owns and operates.
The woman pleaded not guilty to the charge which was read to her by the Acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
Reports are that on Sunday, September 9, police officers acting on information went to the business place of the defendant and carried out a search of her person and premises.
They allegedly uncovered the substance “wrapped in silver paper” in the building that houses the woman’s business.
Attorney at law Latchmie Rahaman appeared on behalf of Applewaithe. The lawyer said that the information she gathered in regards to how the alleged narcotics was found, differs from what the police facts state. Rahaman then requested an early date for trial to further mitigate the claims of the prosecution.
Applewaithe will return to court today.
