Nalini Baldeo, called ‘Julia’, 27, of Lot 369 Number Two Village, East Canje, Berbice and a mother of two, was on Monday remanded to jail by Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court on a charge of possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.
According to Prosecutor Sergeant Phillip Sheriff, on July 5, the police were on the hunt for a man accused of rape. They went to a house to execute an arrest. Upon arrival at the premises the cops met the man’s wife who informed them that he was not at home.
Baldeo was at the premises and upon seeing the cops she retreated into the house and attempted to discard a black plastic bag through one of the windows.
The bag was retrieved and opened in the woman’s presence and what appeared to be leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be cannabis were found inside.
The woman was taken into custody along with the contents of the bag where it was weighed and tested and found to be 63 grams of marijuana.
In a plea for bail Attorney-at law Carolyn Artiga told the court that Baldeo depends entirely on her husband who is the sole breadwinner of the family. She is the only person available to take care of her two children. She stated that the woman is willing to surrender her passport.
However in objecting to bail Prosecutor Sheriff argued that no special reason has been advanced for bail to be granted. He said that when the woman was arrested she was alone at home. The man is on the run and has not been seen since her arrest.
The matter will continue on July 22
