Prosecution closes case in cocaine-in-hammocks trial

Tiffini Collison

The prosecution on Monday closed its case against Tiffini Collison, the woman who is accused of trying to mail four hammocks soaked in cocaine.

It is alleged that Collison, of F 21 Guyhoc Park, on September 20, at DHL, Lot 50 E 53 Alberttown, trafficked 6.742 kilogrammes of cocaine.

Customs Anti-Narcotic Unit (CANU) Prosecutor Konyo Sandiford on Monday closed the case against the accused after testimony by the prosecution’s final witness.

Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan then adjourned the matter to today, when defence attorney Stanley Moore is expected to make closing submissions.

When Collison made her first court appearance, the prosecutor stated that the four hammocks were being posted through DHL by Collison, who used her mother’s identification card.

The defendant’s mother was later contacted but CANU was unable to make contact with Collison.

Five days after the discovery, Collison turned up at CANU headquarters with her attorney.
