Me­chanic, fu­neral home worker charged over ganja

Stabroek News - - REGIONAL NEWS -

A city court yesterday granted bail to a me­chanic and a mor­ti­cian, who were charged jointly with the il­le­gal possession of half a pound of cannabis.

David Lynch and Os­lyn Richards were read a joint charge which al­leged that on De­cem­ber 5th at Al­bouys­town, they had 245 grammes (equiv­a­lent to half a pound) of cannabis in their possession for traf­fick­ing.

Both Lynch, 41, and Richards, 39, were not re­quired to plead to the charge af­ter it was read to them by Chief Mag­is­trate Ann McLen­nan.

Po­lice prose­cu­tor Gor­don Mans­field made no ob­jec­tion to bail be­ing granted, while cit­ing the fact that the nar­cotics were found in a wash­ing ma­chine in a yard un­der a stair­way.

Bail was later set at $100,000 for each ac­cused. They were also or­dered to re­port to the Po­lice Nar­cotics Branch at Eve Leary un­til the com­ple­tion of their trial.

The mat­ter was then ad­journed un­til De­cem­ber 28th.
