Herman Casian Reyes, a 54-year-old laborer of a Lacroix Boulevard address, is out on bail for the offense of drug trafficking. After spending one night in lockdown, Reyes was arraigned before Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser where he was read a single charge of possession of a controlled drug with the intent to supply another person or persons.

According to police, the bust occurred on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at Reyes’s residence. Police attached to the Special Patrol Unit executed a search. In a chest of drawers, they found a black plastic bag containing a green leafy substance suspected to be cannabis. A further search led to the discovery of another bag of cannabis. The two amounts of suspected cannabis were weighed and amounted to 230 grams.

In court where Reyes was unrepresented, he pleaded guilty to possession simplicita and not guilty to the charge of drug trafficking. The prosecution could not say whether or not his guilty plea would be accepted. As a result, the magistrate entered an equivocal plea of not guilty to the charge and on his next court date, he will be informed whether or not his plea was accepted.

With that, Reyes was offered a $3,000 bail plus one surety of the same which he was able to meet. He is due back in court on May 25, 2018.
