Linden woman remanded to prison for cocaine in box


DSC05052Twenty – year – old Onika Tomeka Neils of 612 Half Mile Wismar, Linden appeared before the Magistrate Judy Latchman charged with possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.

The woman pleaded not guilty to the offence. It is alleged that this morning, August 9 at the Georgetown Post Office Corporation Neils had 1.100 kilo gram of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

When the Magistrate asked the woman if she had anything to say about the matter she related that she had no knowledge of what the box contained since she was given the box with a list to take to the GPO.

She said she did not open the box to check what was inside. The CANU prosecutor told the court that that accused came from Linden to Georgetown with someone, who drove the car.

The prosecutor said the driver of the car and the woman are currently in a relationship and he cannot reveal the name of that individual since investigations are still ongoing.

According to the prosecutor, efforts are being made to have the man arrested with the aim of a registration number. Based on the information presented in court the magistrate remanded the accused until September 10. [Royan Abrams]
