Facts presented by the Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves noted that about 10:30 on the day in question, the police conducted a search on the car driven by the defendant, HC 8069, which led to the discovery of six transparent plastic bags in a light pink bag on the defendant’s lap. At the time of the search, a female passenger was in the front seat of the vehicle.

Magistrate Latchman later granted the accused $50,000 bail. His next court appearance will be on September 13 before Magistrate Fabayo Azore.
