Second weed charge means no bail

Thirty-two year old business man Ellington Ottley Sr., who was charged with Drug Trafficking on Monday, was back in court today for a similar offence. Ottley and a sixteen year old minor were charged in connection with four hundred and sixty-seven grams of cannabis that police reported they found at Buy Low Fashion Boutique on Daly Street. They were also charged with Keeping a Prohibited Firearm, namely, a Taurus brand three fifty-seven Magnum, and eleven rounds of prohibited ammunition. The prosecutor objected to bail on the grounds of the previous drug charge. Chief Magistrate Margaret McKenzie upheld the objection and remanded both defendants until January twenty-third. Police executed the search at the boutique yesterday and reported that they found the weed and the firearm in a clothes barrel.
