Vendor accused of trafficking crystal meth, ecstasy granted bail
A 30-year-old clothes vendor appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan Monday charged with trafficking crystal meth and ecstasy from Suriname to Guyana.
Collis Steve Burrowes of Norton Street, Georgetown pleaded not guilty to the two charges and was released on a total of $170,000 bail.
The two charges alleged that Burrowes on December 6, 2019, at Golden Gloves Speed Boat Service, Springlands Corentyne Berbice, had 254 grams of crystal meth and 100 ecstasy pills in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Burrowes was intercepted at the Speed Boat Service where he was searched and the illegal drugs found wrapped in clothing that was inside a haversack he was carrying.
Both crystal meth and ecstasy pills are highly addictive illegal stimulants used for recreational purposes.
The Chief Magistrate transferred the matter to the Springlands Magistrate’s Court for January 14, 2020.
