The pair appeared before Magistrate Renita Singh at the Whim Magistrate’s Court, where the charge was read to them. Both pleaded not guilty of the offence, and were each granted bail in the sum of $300,000.

They were rumbled when the police, acting on a tip-off went to their home at around 10:15 hrs on Thursday, May 14, and saw Derek, who is a farmer, in his yard with two bulky bags in his possession.

Upon seeing the police, he quickly dropped the bags and fled the scene, leaving the two women who were in the yard with him to face the heat.

When the police retrieved the bags and opened them, they found them to contain a quantity of what looked like cannabis, which, when weighed, amounted to 705 grams.

The women, one of whom was Christiana, were detained, while Derek was later arrested.
While in custody, Christiana claimed ownership of the ‘ganja’.
