‘Bajan’ remanded on drug charge
Minibus driver and disc jockey, Dexter Morris called “Bajan” was on Friday remanded to prison for allegedly trafficking over 200 kilograms of cannabis.
Morris of Second Street, Cummings Lodge, Georgetown, appeared before City Magistrate Clive Nurse and denied that on August 27, at Campbellville Housing Scheme, Georgetown, he had 210 kilograms of cannabis in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.
Morris was represented by attorney-at-law Latchmie Rahamat, who made an application for bail, however, the police prosecutor Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Shellon Daniels objected citing the prevalence and penalty attached to the charge.
Magistrate Nurse upheld the prosecution’s objection and remanded Morris to prison until September 22.
Morris, who the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit had issued a wanted bulletin, turned himself in on Tuesday. According to reports, on August 27, CANU officers conducted a joint operation with the Guyana Police Force at three different locations which resulted in the seizure of the marijuana.
The large quantity of marijuana was found at three different locations including inside a mini-bus, which was reportedly driven by Morris.
