Two men, who were found with a quantity of cocaine-filled pellets at an Alpha International Hotel, at Ogle East Bank Demerara, were yesterday remanded to prison after pleading not guilty to a conspiracy charge.Herbert Smith, 44, of Lot 3464 North Ruimveldt Housing Scheme, Georgetown and Dwayne Adams, 35, of Lot 38 Wills Street, Golden Grove, were jointly charged with conspiring to traffic 848 grammes of cocaine. They were allegedly found with the drug on November 13, at the aforementioned hotel.Smith and Adams were both remanded to prison by City Magistrate Judy Latchman, despite a compelling bail application made by their Attorney, Peter Hugh.The defendants will return to court on December 7, when they will appear before the Chief Magistrate.During the bail application, Hugh highlighted that Adams has since admitted to ownership of the narcotic, while Smith said he had nothing to do with the drug. The Attorney argued that the men are charged under the wrong section of the narcotic act. In explaining this, Hugh informed the court that his clients should have been charged for narcotic trafficking, instead of conspiracy to traffic a narcotic.He affirmed that if Adams was charged for drug trafficking he would have pleaded guilty.However,Omar Infante Tigers Jersey, the lawyer’s bail application was opposed by the prosecution, led by Police Corporal Bharrat Mangru. He argued that the special reasons put forward by the Attorney were not sufficient for the court to consider bail. Mangru said that the police are in possession of a caution statement given by Adams.Mangru pointed out that in the statement Adams admitted to having knowledge and ownership of the cocaine. The prosecutor also informed the court that Adams confessed to the police that he had swallowed 27 of the cocaine-laced pellets.The court was told that the man was hospitalized at the Woodlands Hospital, where he excreted the pellets.In concluding, Mangru added that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) advised that the men be charged with conspiracy to traffic the drug.Kaieteur News had earlier reported that the two men were busted at the hotel by ranks of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit(CANU) hours before they were scheduled to board a flight destined for New York’s JFK Airport.It was reported that when CANU swooped down on the hotel, some of the guests who had gone there for their entertainment panicked. They thought that the hotel was being attacked by bandits.
