Prison inmates get charged with Drug Trafficking

Story PictureTwo prison inmates got themselves in more hot water and appeared today in Magistrates’ Court on charges of Drug Trafficking. While they both pleaded not guilty and their case was adjourned until April twenty-third, thirty-one year old David White and twenty-six year old Noel Herrera were carted back to prison because they are currently serving time for Robbery. On March eighteenth, prison officer Marlon Chacon reportedly found one point two ounces of cannabis while searching White’s cell. The drugs were hidden inside a piece of PVC pipe and were tucked in a hole on the wall behind a photo. Herrera, on the other hand, was busted with almost four ounces of cannabis. In this case, it was prison officer Edmund Lopez who discovered the illicit drug in Herrera’s cell wrapped in a shirt on his bed.
