By Aaron Humes: Drum Street resident, Eston Allen, 21, who was allegedly busted by police in possession of 118 grams of cannabis was dragged to court on a single charge of drug trafficking.
Allen pleaded not guilty before Magistrate Emmerson Banner on a single charge of drug trafficking.
Allegations are that on June 27, 2019, he had in his possession 118 grams (4.1 ounces or a quarter-pound) of cannabis with intent to supply to another person or persons for the purpose of drug trafficking. Police on patrol spotted him on a bicycle and as he began to peddle away police set chase and saw him throw a transparent package over a zinc fence which landed into a yard.
Since there was no objection to bail Magistrate Banner offered him bail in the sum of $3,000 plus one surety of the same amount.
Eston Allen is due back on August 29, 2019.
