Teresita FloresOn Wednesday, May 23rd, police executed an early morning search at the home of 33-year-old Teresita Elena Flores located on Pelican Street extension where they found 16.710 kilos of marijuana inside a barrel.

As a result of the discovery, police arrested and charged Flores.  She appeared before Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer where she was read a single charge of drug trafficking. She pleaded not guilty to the charge.  There was no objection to bail and Magistrate Frazer asked her to give her a good reason why she should grant her bail. In  her response, Flores told the court that she had no idea that the substance was in her house. She added that it was her first offence and that the Magistrate should be lenient on her. The response did not satisfy the Magistrate and she remanded Flores to prison until June 22.
