Kartel, who is charged with possession of ganja, was offered $40,000 bail on that charge but will remain in custody as he was remanded on a murder charge.
Last year police raided a hotel in New Kingston and arrested Kartel on three other persons who were in his compnay. The cops were hunting for Kartel in relation to the murder of Barrington ‘Bossie’ Bryan, who was shot while in the company of other persons in Gregory Park, St Catherine.
During a search of the room Kartel occupied, the cops found a small quantity of ganja.
kartel, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, pled not guilty to a ganja possession charge and the matter was sent to trial.
The trial will resume on March 30.
