Drug fines cut into carpenter’s pocket  

COURT TODAY BLOCKShawn Antonio Rollins is now $3,000 poorer after he was ordered to pay that amount in fines to a Bridgetown Court today.

The 1st Avenue Goodland, St Michael resident pleaded guilty to three drug-related charges before Magistrate Graveney Bannister in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court.

After police found the 42-year-old carpenter with 24.63 grams of marijuana yesterday, he was charged with and admitted to possession, trafficking and intent to supply the cannabis.

The prosecution said Rollins was walking along a road close to his home when police noticed him fidgeting. He was subsequently searched and 68 marijuana wrappings were found on him.

For the offences of possession and trafficking, he was fined $1,500 forthwith on each count with an alternative of six months in jail, to run concurrently.

He was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the last charge.
