Trio charged with drug possession
Three St Michael men who were on their way to a reggae show yesterday, never made it there.
That’s because police, who were conducting routine checks, of vehicles, intercepted their vehicle and found marijuana on each of them.
As a result, Carl Clement Woodroffe, 29, of Wavell Avenue, Matthew Omar Carrington, 21, of Melvins Avenue, and Renaldo Antonio Alleyne of St Stephens Hill, all in Black Rock, St Michael, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates Court today.
They were separately charged with possession of cannabis on April 19.
The acting magistrate questioned each of the men, saying he was “at a loss as to why people have to carry dope to a show.”
“You have to be high in order to hear the music? You have to be high in order to understand what they singing? I just don’t understand it…,” he said.
Woodroffe, whose marijuana was found in one of his shoes, explained that he had planned to use it outside “just to lower his feelings.”
“You have high blood pressure. Pawpaw good for that,” Seale responded.
The men were each ordered to pay $750 in court costs which was paid.
