DAYS after the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) moved in and seized a quantity of cannabis that was destined for Suriname, two of the three men, who were arrested, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to answer to the charge.
Randy Chester, 24, and Christopher Garraway, 45, a bartender, appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus and were separately charged with the same offence.

It is alleged that both men, on January 16, 2020, at John Fernandes terminal at Back Road, Mandela Avenue, had 22 kilograms of cannabis and 2.74 grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

The men denied the charge when it was read to them.

Garraway was represented by Attorney-at-Law Keoma Griffith.

CANU prosecutor Konyo Sandiford objected to bail being granted to the men citing the nature of the offence. She added that there was substantial evidence with the handing over of the drugs and caution statements.

Acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus remanded the men to prison and adjourned the matter until January 29, 2020, when they will appear before the Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for disclosure.
