Trinidad & Tobago batsman Runako Morton and Leeward Islands allrounder Tonito Willett have pleaded not guilty at the Port-of-Spain 10th Court after they were arrested for possession of marijuana on March 11. The matter has been adjourned until June 17.
They reappeared before Magistrate Debby-Ann Bassaw, following their release on March 16 after posting cash bail of close to US $3400. They had their passports returned to them, following an application from their lawyer Rajiv Persad.
Morton and Willett were arrested after the first day of T&T's Regional Four-Day Competition match against Leeward Islands in Port-of-Spain for carrying 407 grams of marijuana with an estimated street value of close to US $680. They were picked-up by police following a routine traffic stop and played no further part in the match.
