ESAUN Ruse appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, on Friday, charged with ganja trafficking and was granted $100,000 bail by Magistrate Leron Daly.
Ruse denied the allegation when it was read to him.
It is alleged that, on February 17, 2021, at Laing Avenue, he had in his possession 158 grammes of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.
The court was told that on the day in question at about 11:30 hours, ranks on patrol duty visited Ruse’s house after receiving some information.
Ruse, on seeing the ranks, allegedly threw a black plastic bag he had in his left hand over the fence.
He was immediately apprehended and the bag retrieved.
When checked, it was found to contain leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be marijuana.
Ruse denied any wrongdoing and was escorted to the Ruimveldt Police Station where the seeds, leaves, and stems were weighed in his presence. He was subsequently charged.
The matter was adjourned until April 23, 2021.
