Carpenter, 63, remanded on cocaine trafficking charge


A 63-year-old carpenter, who was allegedly caught red-headed by police while “cutting up” cocaine and packaging it in ziploc bags, was remanded to prison for drug trafficking on Friday.

Ronald Hosib of Hunter Street Albouystown appeared before Chief Magistrate (ag) Sherdel Isaacs-Marcas at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

The unrepresented man pleaded not guilty to the charge which alleged that on October 27, at James Street, he had 13 grams of cocaine in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Defending himself, Hosib vehemently declared, “I don’t sell drugs,” during his court appearance.

According to court documents, on the day in question, police officers on mobile patrol in James Street purportedly observed Hosib in the act of “cutting up” the cocaine and placing it into small transparent Ziploc bags.

The Chief Magistrate remanded Hosib to prison until November 29.
