Man charged with being a gang leader

Ranjee Chadee appeared virtually before Magistrate Cheron Raphael at the Arima First Magistrates’ Court, today to answer to charges of being a gang leader. 

He was also charged for trafficking marijuana.  

He was granted bail in the sum of $350,000.

Chadee, who was wanted by police for engaging in gang-related activities, arrived at the Piarco Police Station with his attorney on Wednesday. He was arrested and charged the next day on the advice of Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard SC. 

The trafficking charge arose out of an incident on September 12, 2019, where officers of the Northern Division Gang Unit intercepted a fielder wagon motor vehicle, where the suspect was one of the occupants along with other persons. The vehicle was searched and police found and seized 16.1 kilogrammes of marijuana. 

The matter was adjourned to Friday, November 13.
