A South Ruimveldt, Georgetown businessman who was allegedly caught with 514 grams of cocaine in a pipe was on Tuesday remanded to prison.Collin Hooper, 40, denied the charge put to him by city Magistrate Fabayo Azore.He denied that on February 2, 2018 at Lot 49 Blue Sackie Drive, South Ruimveldt, he had the illicit substance in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.According to reports, Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) ranks swooped down at Hooper’s premises and found the cocaine stashed in a pipe leading to a septic tank.Defence counsel James Bond informed the court that the substance was found in a pipe which connects to many apartments and as such, his client should not have been charged.He asked for reasonable bail to be granted on those grounds; however, Magistrate Azore denied his submission.Hooper was remanded to prison. The case will continue today.

1 Pedro is a reported target of both Liverpool and Chelsea Chelsea and Liverpool will apparently strengthen their attacks in the summer by moving for Barcelona’s Pedro.The 27-year-old’s release clause was recently reduced to £21m and the forward says there are clubs interested in signing him.Under Luis Enrique, Pedro’s playing time has been limited and the manager hinted his player’s future may lie elsewhere, insisting he will not lie to individuals and promise them minutes on the pitch.Here, talkSPORT looks at what those in the know have to say about the Spain international and there is one recurring theme: a hard worker with bundles of energy who, when in full flow, is very hard to stop.Technically, he is a very good footballer. He is tremendously quick, he works hard without the ball, he will press and harass– Graham Hunter, talkSPORT contributor and author of Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the WorldPedro’s secret is that he never gives up. That’s why every coach ends up loving him– Former Barca manager Gerardo MartinoHe’s a dynamic player and has that top speed required in football today– Spain boss Vicente del BosqueHe scores, he runs without the ball, he attacks, he defends, he does it all. He is perhaps the player who has surprised me the most– Brazil poster boy and Barcelona forward NeymarHe is a top player with great individual ability to score goals and open up the opposition– Current Barcelona manager Luis EnriqueIf Pedro was Brazilian he’d be called Pedrinho and we wouldn’t have the money to sign him– Pep Guardiola, his Barcelona manager in 2010VIDEO: PEDRO SCORES AS BARCELONA TEAR MAN UNITED APART IN THE 2011 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL
Pep Guardiola reportedly tried to land Bonucci last summer 1 Manchester City and Bayern Munich are preparing to enter a bidding war for Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci.The Italian international has played a key part in Juventus’ staggering 17-match unbeaten run in Serie A and his performances have caught the attention of some of Europe’s big hitters.According to Tuttosport, Pep Guardiola tried to land Bonucci last summer and now wants to make him one of his first signings when he takes over at City.One of Guardiola’s first assignments at the Etihad will be to overhaul their unreliable back four and the Spanish manager sees Bonucci as the ideal central defensive partner to Vincent Kompany. But the report also claims Bayern retain a strong interest in the defender and will battle with City to buy the 28-year-old.
Real Madrid have re-signed former striker Alvaro Morata after officially activating a buy-back clause from Juventus, the Italian champions have announced.However, Real are expected to immediately sell the Spain international to the highest bidder, with Arsenal linked with a big-money move.The Gunners are reportedly ready to make the 23-year-old one of their best-paid players to tempt him to the Emirates Stadium this summer.Morata scored 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Old Lady after leaving Madrid for Turin in 2014.Morata won two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia crowns and also reached the Champions League final in 2015, scoring as Juventus lost 3-1 to Barcelona.A statement on Juventus’ official website read: “All associated with Juventus Football Club would like to wish Alvaro the very best of luck wherever his future may take him and thank him for two truly excellent years of service to the team.”The Spain striker, who scored three goals at Euro 2016, has been linked with an immediate move from Real Madrid to the Premier League for some time.Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been reportedly interested in Morata, who wrote an open letter published on his official website late last month.The letter, published on June 24, read: “Hello everyone. It’s not easy for me to write this letter. First of all, I want to thank those who have believed in me, counted on me and treated me kindly so that I could be happy at Juventus and in Turin.He added: “I remain marked by this club, its history and all of you.“Wherever I will go I will always be a Juventus supporter, and I’ll be able to say proudly and out loud that I’ve been part of this club and I’ve been a champion with this shirt.“Once again, thanks everyone for letting me be part of this family. With love, Alvaro.” 1 Alvaro Morata is back at Real Madrid…but for how long?

THE widow of a man killed over a commercial dispute has launched a legal bid to get money from his Co Donegal killer.Terence Madden, 52, bled to death after being shot in both legs at close range on January 28th 1999.Mr Madden’s widow, Margaret Madden, 58, a B&B owner at Lough Gara House, Monasteraden, So Sligo, is suing Joseph Herron, formerly of Chapel street, Ballyshannon for the loss of her husband and her own shock, pain and distress. She is also suing Michael Doohan, a former member of the Defence Forrces, formerly of Ashbury Lawns, Ballinode, Co Sligo, and Patrick McGrath, formerly of Cuilpruglish, Gurteen, Co Sligo.Along with Herron all three received life sentences at the Special Criminal Court in 2000 for their part in the murder.A fourth man, Thomas Derrig, of Battlefield, Culfadda, Ballymote, Co Sligo, received a three year suspended sentence after pleading guilty to possessing a sawn-off shotgun.The High Court heard that Michael Doohan’s family and the Madden’s were neighbours and that both families ran B&B businesses.The Court heard that the murder arose from resentment felt by Michael Doohan towards Terence Madden over the erection of B&B signs.Herron was also jailed for 10 years for possessing a sawn-off shotgun with intent to endanger life on the same date.At his trial in 2000 Mr Justice Frederick Morris said the Special Criminal Court was satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that a statement made by Herron to gardai was true.Herron told gardai he agreed to “do” or “sort out” Mr Madden for a payment of £1,500 as revenge for a perceived grievance.The judge said the court was satisfied that Herron fired two shots from a shotgun at Mr Madden, the first as he ran back to his house and the second, into the back of his knee from a distance of about seven feet, after he had ordered Mr Madden to lie on his belly.The court was satisfied that Mr Madden bled to death after he was shot in the back of both legs outside his home. The second shot to his right leg severed the main artery and vein.The judge said the court also accepted that there was no evidence that Herron intended to kill Mr Madden but did intend to cause him serious injury and therefore under the 1964 Criminal Justice Act was guilty of murder.Inspector Michael Barrett told the trial that Herron, who moved to Ballyshannon in 1987, was convicted in the Special Criminal Court in February, 1988 for possessing a firearm with intent to enable another person to endanger life and was jailed for four years.Herron’s counsel Brendan Grogan SC read a statement from the defendant to the court.In the statement Herron said: “I am very remorseful for what happened to Terry Madden. I didn’t intend to kill that man. I have sat in court for three weeks and watched Terry Madden’s wife, children and family having to listen to the details of how he died.“I think they have gone through enough as have my family. I know I have to go to jail. I know it is no consolation to the Madden family. I hope the court accepts my genuine sorrow.”MURDERED MAN’S WIDOW SUES DONEGAL KILLER FOR COMPENSATION was last modified: October 4th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Navas is Real Madrid’s number one Key players:Costa Rica: There is no doubt that Keylor Navas is Costa Rica’s key player. Navas made his name at the last World Cup, and he has gone from strength to strength since then, joining Real Madrid and helping them win numerous trophies, including three European Cups in a row. 3 The Cosmos Arena will host Costa Rica v Serbia 3 3 Where can I stream Costa Rica v Serbia?Costa Rica v Serbia is live to stream on talkSPORT.com, or you can listen on 1089 or 1053 AM, DAB radio or through the talkSPORT mobile app.
