[www.inewsguyana.com] – A man who the police allegedly found with cocaine and marijuana was on Monday April 13, refused bail in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

Twenty-two-year old Troy Gordon denied the charge which stated that on April 9, at Arau Backdam, he had in his possession 31 grammes of cocaine, for the purpose of trafficking. 

Gordon of Lot 56, 6th Avenue, Bartica also denied that the police found him with 26 grammes of marijuana, at the said place.

According to the prosecution, the police stopped and searched the defendant, and discovered the drugs in a haversack he was carrying.

Contrarily, Gordon’s attorney told the court that his client was not found with the drugs. He claimed the drugs were found in a camp next to his client’s.

Bail was objected to by the prosecution, on the grounds of the nature and prevalence of the offence. It was also said that no special reason was given to the court for bail to be granted. 

Gordon was remanded until June 01, when he will appear at the Kamarang Magistrates’ Court.
