UNITED States deportee Avery Cummings, who was allegedly caught with “creep weed” and “hash”, which is a potent form of cannabis, on Friday appeared in the Diamond/Grove Magistrates’ Court on two counts of drug trafficking.

He appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman and pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded to prison.

Cummings, who is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Lyndon Amsterdam, will make his second court appearance on January 3, 2022.

According to reports from the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), ranks acting on information received went to Cummings’ Swam and Sam Ville, Soesdyke-Linden Highway home and conducted a search.

During that search, they discovered several parcels of the foreign strain of cannabis, called ‘creep weed’, which amounted to 5.3 kilograms, along with several Ziploc bags containing cannabis and cannabis seeds amounting to 3.68 grams.

The ranks also found 3.5 grams of hashish, called ‘hash’, which is a by-product of the dried cannabis plant.

He was arrested and taken to CANU headquarters, where he was later charged.

According to CANU, Cummings was deported to Guyana from the USA in 2009, after being convicted for trafficking narcotics.
