Teen school girl appears in court on marijuana possession charge

Teen school girl appears in court on marijuana possession charge

marijuana possessionA 15 year old schoolgirl has been charged with marijuana possession.

The girl was charged along with four other others, Rajkumar Bissoondath, 23, a labourer; his wife Narissa Bissoondath, 23, an

accounts clerk; Sarah Stewart, 25, and Naieem Mohammed, 18.

They all appeared before San Fernando Sixth Court Magistrate Natalie Diop.

Reports indicate that they were arrested on Sunday after the police allegedly found 5.5 grammes of marijuana in their possession at Tarouba Link Road, Tarouba.

In asking for bail, Ali said his client had an impressive school record.

The Bissoondaths of Princes Town have a three-year-old child.

Mohammed, also of Princes Town, said he worked as a part-time lorryman and is studying electrical maintenance at a tertiary

institution and Stewart, a mother of two, operates a bar.

The prosecutor only objected to bail for Rajkumar Bissoondath who, he said, owed outstanding money for a 2012 conviction.

The magistrate granted own bail in the sum of $7,000 to Bissoondath’s wife Narissa, Mohammed, Stewart and the schoolgirl.

They were told to return to court on November 21
