An Albouystown resident who was allegedly caught with 3 grams of cocaine by the police at Bourda Market was this afternoon remanded for the offence.
Dexter Klass, 27 was remanded until April 12, 2019 by Senior Magistrate Leron Daly after he appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to a drug trafficking charge.
An unrepresented Klass denied the charge which stated that on March 19, 2019 at Bourda Market, Georgetown, he had three grams of cocaine in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.
The court prosecutor, Sanj Singh, was opposed to bail being granted to Klass on the grounds of the prevalence of the offence and the penalty the charge attracts.
Facts presented by the prosecutor stated that the cocaine was found in Klass’ pants pocket when he was searched by the police at Bourda Market.
The Magistrate, after listening to the prosecutor, remanded Klass to prison.
The father of one is expected to make his next court appearance on April 12, 2019.
