Essequibo Coast man jailed for 3 years, fined $4M for drug trafficking – Guyana Times
Davenand Dwarka, 30, of Lot 23 Henrietta, Essequibo Coast, was found guilty of trafficking in marijuana last Wednesday. He was given a three-year prison sentence and a $4,136,550 fine.
When Dwarka saw the Police, he leaped from the stall and tried to hide by lying down flat.
In addition, a white digital scale was also seen in the bag.
Back in January, Dwarka was granted bail in the sum of $200,000 after he was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
On the day in question, Dwarka was reportedly spotted outside the Jaigobin Hotel with an object poking out of the waist of his pants by Police ranks who were on a mobile patrol on the Henrietta Public Road. Dwarka ran into a parking lot, and the ranks gave chase, and he fell into an area with mud. As the Police ranks attempted to grab him, the firearm fell into the mud, and during this time, he reportedly jumped into a nearby trench and made good his escape. Later that day, he made an attempt to flee before being arrested by the Police at his aunt’s home in Henrietta.
