He said during the patrol they found the accused Sulayman Darboe at  Kabokorr village junction and they made a thorough search on him after identifying themselves as narcotic officers.

During the search, he said a basket of suspected cannabis covered with a jacket was found at the scene and the said cannabis and the six bundles of suspected cannabis were wrapped with cement papers. He said when the accused was questioned about where he obtained the said suspected drugs he alleged that he took it from Bongahi in Cassamance.

The said pink basket and the content were accepted by the Magistrate as an exhibit marked as exhibit P3 upon the plea of the prosecuting officer, Nicholas Jammeh.
