A Vermont woman was on Monday brought before the Serious Offences Court on cocaine possession charges, the second time this year.

On Sunday, Oct. 15, Gaston Browne, 30, unemployed, of Campden Park and Jolette Indirah Laborde, 31, a sales clerk of Vermont were arrested and charged jointly for having in their possession, 236 grammes of cocaine with intent to supply it to another at Penniston.

Laborde, who is originally from Petit Bordel, was also charged with having in her possession 24 grammes of cocaine, with intent to supply it to another, at Penniston.

The offences were allegedly committed on Saturday, Oct. 14.
At the arraignment on Monday, Browne was not in court and Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delplesche told Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias that the accused man was in hospital.

He, however, said he was proceeding with the matter.

Laborde pleaded guilty to each charge.

She, however, pleaded not guilty to a charge that on Saturday she had in her possession one 43’ television, one length of green water hose and one box containing 27 AA Energizer batteries, reasonably suspected to be stolen or unlawfully obtained.

Delplesche asked the court to adjourn the sentencing part of the proceedings until today, Tuesday.

On June 11, Laborde was charged with three counts of cocaine possession and one count of possession of cannabis.

She pleaded not guilty to those charges.
