THREE men are to appear in court on Monday charged with possession of narcotics, ammunition and a monkey which police believed to be protected.
According to police reports Inspector Henry Dann of the St James Police Station led an exercise in the Diego Martin area on Thursday afternoon.
During the exercise Dann accompanied by Cpl Charles and constables Bernard and Wickham went to the home of a 33-year-old man from Upper Blossom Avenue Diego Martin and executed a search warrant at his home for narcotics.
The officers said upon approaching the home the monkey, which was caged began to scream and jump around. The animal named "George" is believed to have been attempting to alert the owners of the home police said.
The officers found 464 grams of marijuana and three rounds of ammunition which police say they have yet to identify. The officers also discovered a Yamaha 250 horse powered boat engine and a hydraulic hoist at the home, which police have reason to believe has been stolen.
Two other men, a 21-year-old from Upper Blossom Avenue and a 28-year-old from Vanderpool Lane was at the home and were arrested also. Acting Corporal Linton laid the charges.
