Cannabis found during search
Coppin, 32, lives at Valery Land, Upper Collymore Rock, St Michael.
When the unemployed man went before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of the marijuana, but denied having a traffickable quantity or intent to supply the same.
He was fined $750 forthwith and his other matters adjourned until October 20. He will be on $2 500 bail until then.
The facts revealed that when police went to the house and entered his bedroom, the floor was carpeted. On lifting the carpet, they found a small hole in the floor.
A peanut butter container was found under the cellar with the marijuana inside, in small transparent plastic bags.
