Farmer jailed for supplying narcotic drugs
The court, presided over by Mr Francis Obiri, also fined Mawulorm GHc 120.00 and ordered that the exhibits be destroyed by the investigator under the supervision of the court's registrar.
Prosecuting, Detective Inspector Isaac Agbemehia told the court that the complainants were police personnel from the Highway Patrol Unit, while the convict was a resident of Dzemeni in the Volta Region.
He said on February 23, 2013, at about 2:35pm, the team was conducting a snap check along the Accra-Aseseeso Adukrom road when it stopped a Toyota Hiace with registration number GC 2411Z, driven by Mensah Globor with passengers, including the convict, on board.
He said in the course of searching the vehicle, they found the convict carrying a black handbag on his laps, and a search conducted therein revealed three compressed slabs of dried leaves suspected to be cannabis.
Prosecution said on February 22, the exhibits were brought together with the convict for investigation.
The convict, in his caution statement, admitted carrying the exhibits on the orders of one Kofi Asante of Dzemeni to be delivered to one Mohammed at Medie.
