A former Port employee has appeared in court charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.
60 year old Claydon Wyllie was arrested during an anti-crime exercise on December 13th along Wilson Road, Scarborough, shortly after he disembarked the T&T Spirit ferry in a black Mazda SUV.
Acting on a information, police intercepted the vehicle and found a black plastic bag containing 10 blocks of marijuana in the trunk under the spare tyre.
They also found a white plastic bag containing marijuana in the suspect’s left rear pants pocket.
A total of 5.73 kilograms of the drug was seized.
Wyllie pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Scarborough Magistrate Indrani Cedeno on Monday, and was released on $250,000 bail.
He was also ordered to report to the St. James Police station or the Scarborough Police Station once per week at any time.
The matter will next be heard on January 14th.
