American accused of drug possession

A 24-year-old American staying at the Crane Resort in St. Philip, was today convicted on five drug-related offences.

Johnny Lee, who was charged with two counts of possession and one each of possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation, pleaded guilty to all five. Lee was fined $1,000 forthwith, which he paid, for one of the possession charges, but convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the others.

Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector David Welch, said the case arose out of the arrival here of drugs via a courier service and later the discovery of more contraband in his hotel room. (EJ)
