Woman accused of ganja in egg trays remanded

Posted By Stabroek News On May 19, 2008

A 36-year-old Turkeyen woman who was allegedly caught at the Ogle airport with cannabis concealed in a stack of egg trays was on Friday remanded to prison by Magistrate Hazel Octive-Hamilton.
Michelle Sancho, a shopkeeper of Lot 478 Third Street, Turkeyen denied a charge of possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking, when it was read in the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court.
It is alleged that on May 13, Sancho had in her possession 280 grammes of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.

Reports are that on the day in question ranks from the police narcotics branch acting on information received went to the Ogle airport.

When Sancho arrived, the ranks identified themselves and asked to search the goods she was taking to Ekereku in the Cuyuni/Mazaruni area.

During the search according to reports, a stack of five egg trays was searched. When ranks removed all the eggs on the top tray they discovered two holes with two black bags stuffed inside.
A search of the trays unearthed a quantity of cannabis leaves, seeds and stems.

She was told of the offence and arrested.

Sancho was represented by attorney-at-law Vic Puran.

The matter will continue at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Who are Descendants of Clarence Sancho and Mary (David) Sancho?

Are you aware of Samuel David and Mary (David)Sancho of Golden Grove? Samuel David was a Sergeant of British Guiana Police Force.  Samuel David departed in 1945 or 1946. Mary David and Clarence Sancho were married. The couple had about seven children. Much respect to Wainwright for pointing pieces of information on the David and Sancho union  to me some 43 years ago. Who must I consult to acquire the  knowledge  relative to David family  especially the descendants of  grand Uncle Clarence  Sancho?

John Baptiste Sanco

On Friday, March 20, 2009, I visited the New York Public Library, Humanities and Social Sciences (Research Division). I accessed copies of the Trinidad and Tobago year books for the years 1921 thru 1935. I paid particular attention to the obituary, which is found immediately following local events in the publications.

I made notes of the data of persons with the surnames of interest to me. At this instance I cannot locate the entire documentation.
In the yearbook for the year 1929 data is found telling readers that Mrs. Elizabeth Sancho, 92 years old died on November 30, 1928. I suppose she was born in either 1835 or 1836.  (perhaps, wife of John Sancho??)
In other issues of the yearbook entries listed below are included.
Mrs. Rupert Sancho died November 13, 1924 (Possibly, Chinese-Trinidadian)
John Baptiste Sanco died February 17, 1920. (I believe data will prove this John Sancho to be perhaps too young to be an uncle of Lambert Tuckness Sancho, for I am of the impression Sancho male…
