A Lowmans Windward woman was arrested over the weekend, and charged three times in relation to over 1000 g of cocaine.

Suranie Graham of Lowmans Windward appeared before Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offences Court yesterday.

There, she was charged for, on January 26, in Kingstown, having in her possession 1024 g of cocaine with the intent to supply it to another. Secondly, it was put to her that she had this amount of the controlled drug in her possession for the purpose of drug trafficking, and finally, that she did import the 1024g of cocaine.

All of the offences are in contravention of the Drugs Prevention of Misuse Act.

Graham, who is represented by attorney Ashelle Morgan, responded that she was not guilty of any of the charges.

A $20,000 bail with one surety was affixed, and reporting conditions to the Biabou police station every Monday between 6 am and 6 pm were assigned to her. Stop notices at all ports of entry and exit were also enforced, and a curfew between 7 pm and 6 am. Further, if the defendant wishes to leave the state, she must seek permission from the court.

The next court date for Graham is March 15.
