Following a no-case submission by her counsel Ronald Marks, chief magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias ruled in favour of Davis on August 14 at a sitting of the Serious Offences Court.

Michael Cozier, 30, the other person who was charged in the matter, had been found not guilty in the early stages of the trial. Senior prosecutor in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Adolphus Delpesche had conceded to the no-case submission which was put forward by Marks on Cozier’s behalf.

On November 11, 2014, the duo, both of Harmony Hall, were jointly charged with ‘that at the SVG Postal Corporation had in their possession 1,465 grams of marijuana for the purpose of drug trafficking.’

They were further charged jointly with possession of 1,465 grams of marijuana with intent to supply on November 11, as well as attempting to export the drug at the SVG Postal Corporation on the same date.

According to reports, police were called in after the drug was discovered at the Postal Corporation on the said date. Investigations subsequently carried out led to the arrests of Cozier and Davis. (KW)
