A Campbellville mother of three who police said ran and threw a bulky bag outside her window after they approached her door, was today charged for trafficking 91 grams of marijuana.

The woman, Danisha Harris, 33, of Campbellville Housing Scheme, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

The unrepresented woman pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that, on March 29, 2019 at Campbellville, Georgetown, she had in her possession 91 grams of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

Facts presented by Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield stated that, on the date in question, a party of police officers from the Kitty Police Station, acting on information, went to the woman’s Campbellville home.

The court heard that, when the officers approached the woman’s door, she ran further into her home upon seeing them.

Hence, the ranks followed her and observed her throwing a bulky plastic bag through a window. A rank then went and retrieved the bag, which was then opened in front of the woman. The bag contained a quantity of leaves, seeds and stems suspected to be marijuana.

She was then told of the allegation, to which she denied. Hence, she was arrested and taken into custody.

While the prosecutor had no objections to bail being granted to the mother of three, he asked that conditions be attached.

The Magistrate, after listening to the prosecutor, released the woman on $120,000 bail with the condition that she reports every Friday to the officer in charge at the Kitty Police Station until the hearing and determination of the trial.

She was instructed to make her next court appearance on April 24, 2019.
