Tuesday, August 18th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: The sister of a woman accused last week of attempting to smuggle marijuana into the Central Prison in Hattieville is accused this week of attempting the same.
33 year old Shelmadine Garbutt is charged with drug trafficking for taking three grams of the drug into the prison on Sunday August 16, when prison officials retrieved it from her brassiere.
Garbutt admitted the drug was hers and it was part of her birthday celebration. Magistrate Ladonna John set bail of $7,000 and adjourned the matter to September 5.
28 year old Anna Garbutt, Shelmadine’s younger sister, was charged last week for allegedly sneaking hidden cannabis between plates of food into the Hattieville compound.
