Two Charged After £30,000 Cannabis Seizure

 

Two local men are due to appear in court this morning in relation to a £30,000 cannabis resin seizure in Gibraltar.

Jamie FA, 22, of Mons Calpe Mews and Jean Pierre CHELLARAM HATHIRAMANI LADRON DE GUEVARA, 22, of the Anchorage, were both charged with number of drug related offences at New Mole House last night.

The charges follow an incident on the 16th April 2020, when RGP Response Team officers challenged a number of individuals seen arriving at Western Beach in a pleasure craft and handing over a bag that was later found to contain 5 slabs of cannabis resin weighing approximately 5kg.

The individual receiving the drugs at Western Beach then fled the scene on a motorcycle and was pursued by officers across Gibraltar.

The individual in question and others were then arrested shortly afterwards in the South District.

The drugs were recovered from within a locally registered motorcar that was impounded, whilst the motorcycle pursued by officers was also found and seized.

A Drug Squad investigation saw other individuals arrested, search warrants executed and the forensic analysis of various mobile phones and drugs seized.

After surrendering to their bail yesterday (02/02/21), the two men were charged as follows:

 

Jamie FA was charged with:

 

 Possession of a Controlled Class B Drug, namely Cannabis Resin

 Possession of a Controlled Class B Drug with Intent to Supply, namely Cannabis Resin
