Pinay charged for ‘ice,’ obstruction

03 December 2018

A Filipina has been charged in Eastern Court with obstructing Customs officers who searched her bag and found a small amount of the drug “ice” at the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry terminal in Sheung Wan.

Three other charges were laid on Nov 26 against Cheryll Salvador, namely, possession of a dangerous drug, possession of equipment fit to inhale a dangerous drug, and possession of tablets classified as Part 1 poison or regulated drug.

The prosecution said Salvador, 33, was in the departure hall on Nov 23 waiting to board a ferry to Macau when she was stopped by Customs officers to check her backpack.
The woman allegedly tried to stop the officers from inspecting her backpack. When the officers eventually managed to check its contents, they allegedly found 0.34 gram of methamphetamine inside.

Also allegedly seized from Salvador was an apparatus intended for the inhalation of  methamphetamine, with a glass tube that had traces of the drug.

In addition, the officers reportedly found five tablets made of the regulated drug.
The prosecution said Salvador had no fixed address and was holding a Philippine passport
Law granted Salvador’s bail application and told her to pay $2,000 to the court, must remain in Hong Kong, surrender her passport, stay in her given address and report to the Wanchai police station everyday between 9am and 6pm daily.

Law adjourned the hearing until Jan 21 and told the Filipina to return on that day.  – Vir B. Lumicao
