Two Grenadian Girls Jointly  Charged In Busted Guyanese DRUG RING

Two Grenadian women from the fishing town of Gouyave in St John’s; ages 18 and 19 are among a group of Guyanese nationals charged in last weekend’s police crackdown on a major drug operation within the island’s capital city; resulting in the seizure of 4 kilos of cocaine, arms, ammunition and a quantity of equipment believed to be used in the processing of the band drug cocaine.

The two; Rashida Marshall and Johsan Harriman, both appeared before Chief Magistrate Tamera Gill last Friday, charged with possession of a controlled drug following their arrest earlier in the week. 

Both ladies were initially placed on bail of $50,000.00 each with two sureties. Informer later learned that bail bond was subsequently reduced to $ 25,000.00 each to facilitate the young ladies who were having difficulties finding bailers.  In addition to their bail, the ladies were asked to surrender all travel documents and report to the Gouyave police Station twice-weekly Monday and Friday between the hours of 6am and 6pm.  

 Meanwhile the four Guyanese Colin Hooper 34, Osafi Bobb 21, Mahendranauth Daff 34 and David Frank 50, who were also charged in what the lawmen believed was a major drug ring, were denied bail on the grounds that they were none nationals and therefore flight risk may be an issue.

 The men are faced with some twelve charges ranging from, conspiracy, trafficking and possession of a controlled drug, possession of equipment to be used in the processing of cocaine, doing an act proprietary to trafficking, and possession of arms and ammunition. 

  All six people were arrested on September 24th and October 4th respectively in Grand Anse and Tempe, where according to reports a quantity of equipment believed to be used in the processing of cocaine were discovered. Some of the items discovered were, body filler, hydraulic jack, hammer, baking sheets, sealers plastic wrap among others.

 During last Friday’s court sitting the prosecution team headed by Crown Council Howard, opted to proceed indictable on all counts, sighting the seriousness of the offence before the court and the level of organization that went into the alleged operation.

 The prosecution did not object to bail for the locals however asked that the bail posted reflect the seriousness of the offense.

 The men are represented by defense counsels Peter David and Francis Paul and are expected to make their second court appearance on October 27th.
