The officers then proceeded to monitor the patch, during which they observed a male individual entering the area.
After further monitoring, the officers apprehended the individual.
The suspect was identified as Mr. Isaiah Parry of Hamilton Estate.
He was transported to the Charlestown Police Station, and formally arrested and charged with the offense.
Officers uprooted about over 5,000 cannabis trees, ranging from 2 feet to 11 feet tall.
The value of the cannabis trees could amount to as much as one million E.C dollars ($1, 000, 00.00) if Mr. Parry is convicted at the Magistrate’s Court level.
Therefore Mr. Parry could possibly be fined as much as $100,000.00 or serve 3 years imprisonment for the offence. He would most likely be charged with possession of cannabis, possession of cannabis with intent to distribute and cultivation of cannabis.
