A 20-year-old businesswoman of Lowmans Windward was, on Monday, granted EC$20,000 bail on three cocaine-related charges.

Suranie Graham was brought before the Serious Offences Court charged that on Saturday, Jan. 26, in Kingstown, she had in her possession 1,025 grammes (2.2lbs) of cocaine with intent to supply it to another.
She was further charged that, on the same date, she had the cocaine for the purpose of drug trafficking.

The woman was also charged with importing the drug.

She pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

The prosecution did not object to bail but asked for sufficient surety.

As part of the bail condition, Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne also ordered the woman to provide one surety and to report to the Biabou Police Station on Mondays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Graham was placed under a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and was also ordered to surrender her travel documents to the court.

The chief magistrate also ordered that stop notices be placed at ports of entry and exit and ordered the woman to seek the permission of the court to leave the country.

The matter was adjourned to March 15.

One reply on “Woman, 20, on cocaine charges”

  1. This is some serious weight of cocaine (2.2lbs)! We have seen what has become of Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico through this cocaine trade. With Legal cannabis is cocaine to be the new money earner in St Vincent and the Grenadines?

    Humm! May God help us!

    As Venezuela implodes and hunger spreads there some enterprising individuals may find that St Vincent and the Grenadines is rather like a plum, ripe for the picking. Should we be profoundly worried? Now is the time to ask Ralph!
