Amraan James, a Customs officer of City Gate, Castries and Edmund Lucius Charles Alfred of Anse La Raye appeared before Magistrate Christine Phulchere on Tuesday, Aug. 13 in Castries in connection with a drug bust.
They were ordered remanded until their next scheduled court appearance on Sept 13, 2013.
The men were on Friday, August 9, 2013, charged for the offences of possession of a controlled drug and possession with the intent to supply a controlled drug.
The arrests stemmed from an incident on Saturday, August 3, 2013 when Drug Unit officers executed a search warrant on a residence belonging to James.
“The officers recovered 283 pounds of compressed dry green plants suspected to be cannabis on the premise,” a police press release stated.
The initial police report had indicated that four men were arrested for the drug bust but today’s press release stated that only two have been officially charged.
