A woman was yesterday remanded after being charged with allegedly trafficking more than 600 grammes of cannabis, which were found in a shop located in her yard.

The police are saying that on November 15th, 2018, at Lot EE Hardina Street, Werk-en-Rust, Roslyn Barclay had 650 grammes of cannabis in her possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Barclay pleaded not guilty to charge, which was read to her by Magistrate Leron Daly in Georgetown.

According to the police prosecutor, police ranks conducted a search on Barclay and her house and found nothing. However, when they searched the shop, which is located on the premises, a black bag containing the cannabis was found.

Barclay was subsequently remanded until December 14th, when her next hearing is scheduled.

Barclay was the second person to be charged over cannabis found at the Werk-en-Rust property.

On Thursday, Orin Vickery, 46, was charged with having possession of 22 grammes of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking. The discovery was made on November 13th.

The father of seven appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, where he pleaded not guilty to the charge.

According to attorney Patrice Henry, who represented Vickery, the cannabis was not found on him but it was found under his bridge, which is used by many others.

Vickery was granted his release on $50,000 bail and was told to return to court on November 30th, 2018, for his next hearing.
