An Accra Circuit Court on Monday remanded an unemployed man for allegedly possessing 227 wraps of narcotic drugs suspected to be Indian hemp.

Moses Quashie, popularly known as Rasta was arrested at Kokrobite in Greater Accra with the drugs.

The police found the drugs on him during a search at his house after a robbery case incident he was alleged a suspect.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge of possession of narcotic drugs without authorisation.

The court presided over by Mrs. Ruby Ayitey adjourned the case to June 6, 2019.

Presenting the facts of the case, the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Samuel Ahiabor said on April 5, 2019, the accused person was arrested on suspicion of his involvement in a robbery case with five other friends.

During investigations, he led the police to his house where a search was conducted and a black polythene bag containing the 227 wraps of dried leaves suspected to be Indian hemp, the prosecution said.

The prosecution said on April 24, 2019, Otso was also arrested and when he was paraded before the District Police Commander, Rasta denied knowing Otso as the one he earlier alleged to have given him the drugs.

The exhibits [227 wrappers of dried leaves] have since been forwarded to the police crime laboratory for analytical examination and report, the prosecution said.
