MUTARE- A Mutare girl is in court for possessing crystal meth after her mother found the dangerous drug hidden in a handbag and called the Police to arrest her.
Trish Matikiti was remanded in custody to April 12, 2023, by Mutare Magistrate Perseverance Makala for possession of crystal meth. She appeared in court this week.
The prosecutor, Joice Tinarwo, told the court that Trish was arrested on Monday after she came home drunk. Her mother, Christina Maruta of New Chisamba, Sakubva in Mutare, searched her handbag and found a sachet of Crystal Methamphetamine wrapped in a ZWL$20 bill.
Maruta then called the Police, who arrested her daughter after discovering crystal meth in her bag. The crystal meth weighed a gram.
“Upon arrival, Maruta noticed that Trish was drunk and suspected her daughter to be on drugs. She then searched her handbag and found a sachet of Crystal Methamphetamine concealed in a ZWL$20 note. After recovering the drug, she called Police officers who swiftly came and seized the sachet from the accused,” said Tinarwo.
Magistrate Makala advised Trish to apply for bail at the High Court.
