Man released on $250,000 bail on drug trafficking charge
A 31-year-old man, who was recently busted with $1.8M worth in compressed cannabis in his motorcar, was on Tuesday released on $250,000 bail for drug trafficking.
Roylon Adolph of Industrial Area, Mackenzie, Linden, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge, which alleged that on October 22, at ‘D’ Field Sophia, Georgetown, he had 4.296 kilograms in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.
His attorney, Dexter Todd made an application for bail on the ground that the narcotics were not found in his client’s possession.
The Chief Magistrate released Adolph on $250,000 bail and adjourned the matter until November 22.
As a condition to his bail, the Chief Magistrate ordered Adolph to report to CANU headquarters every Friday, until the completion of the case.
According to reports on Friday, ranks from the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) were carrying out operations in ‘D’ Field, Sophia, Georgetown, when they searched a white Toyota Fielder wagon that was parked in front of a shop.
At the time, Adolph was the driver of the car, which had two male passengers inside.
The motorcar was searched, and eight bulky parcels containing the cannabis were found inside. The men were arrested and taken to CANU Headquarters and based on the investigation carried out, Adolph was charged.
