Woman who hid ‘ganja’ in toddler’s pillow remanded
A 24-year-old woman who was recently arrested during a raid by police after she attempted to stash cannabis in her child’s pillow, was remanded to prison on Tuesday by Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan.
Nekita Poole pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on August 18, at Sandy Place, Kitty, she had 252.2 grams of cannabis in her possession for the purpose of trafficking. She was remanded until September 11, 2017.
Police Prosecutor, Arwin Moore told the court that on the day in question, police executed a raid at the woman’s house, during which she told her 4-year-old son to go over by his aunt who lives in the next house in the same yard.
Poole reportedly went into her bedroom with her son and picked up the child’s pillow and attempted to take him next-door. However, ranks became suspicious of her actions and searched the pillow and found a black plastic bag containing cannabis.
The prosecutor objected to the woman being released on bail citing the gravity and nature of the charge.
