Man tells Court cocaine was “planted” on him …granted $30,000 bail


A man appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday and vehemently denied that cocaine allegedly found in his possession belonged to him.

According to Quacy Moore, on September 7, 2017 at Bourda, Georgetown the one gram of cocaine allegedly discovered by Police on his person was “planted” on him.

Moore told City Magistrate Judy Latchman that on the day of the discovery, he was in the vicinity of Bourda when he was approached and searched by ranks that were on patrol.

He claimed that he was arrested without cause, however while on his way to the Alberttown Police Station, he was shown the cocaine and told that the drug was found in his pocket which led to the present charge.

Moore revealed that when he was first searched, there were a number of persons present that can attest to his story.

Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves told Magistrate Latchman that the analyst report in the matter would be available in two months.

The accused was granted bail in the sum of $30,000.

The case will continue on September 29.
