Man remanded in custody after being caught with 75 sachets of heroin

In Court, the defence lawyer of a man accused with possessing 75 sachets of heroin requested that he is sent at Mount Carmel’s forensic section instead of being released from custody.

49-year old Stephen Cachia from San Ġwann was arrested on Sunday after he was caught with a pouch full of drugs at a club in San Ġwann.

He is now accused with drug trafficking and attending a place where youths gather. The court ordered that Cachia is remanded in custody and requested the Prison Director to inquire the need on whether the accused should be sent to Mt Carmel’s forensic section as the defence requested.
