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.
