THREE Claxton Bay men appeared yesterday before a Sangre Grande magistrate charged with trafficking in $3 million worth in marijuana, some of which was brought into court as exhibits in garbage bags and pigtail buckets.

The accused men, Kent Stewart, 38, Dexter Seemungal, 36, and Subash Herman, 38, all of Claxton Bay appeared before Magistrate Rae Roopchand in the First Court charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.

The men were jointly charged with the offence by Cpl Pamphille.

When the charges were read out in court by Roopchand to Stewart, Seemungal and Herman, they were informed that they would not be called on to enter a plea as the charges were laid indictably meaning the case will have to be determined by a judge and jury in the High Courts, if this is ordered by a magistrate at the end of a preliminary inquiry.

Officers later brought in some of the marijuana in black garbage bags and pigtail buckets to be viewed by the courts and marked as official court exhibits.

Roopchand later informed the accused men that he was refusing them bail.

The magistrate then transferred the case to the Couva Magistratesí Court and adjourned the case to July 7.

According to the charge, police officers were on exercise in the forests on Saturday June 28 when they arrested a group of men who were found with a quantity of marijuana with an estimated local street value of $3 million. The men were taken to the Arima Police Station, where they were cautioned by Pamphille of North Eastern Division Task Force. Other officers involved in the raid including Cpl Cassar, PCs Elliot and Llewellyn.
