Cannabis found during search

COURT TODAY BLOCKA search warrant which police executed at the home of Travis Rondell Coppin today, yielded 15 paper wrappings of cannabis.

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.

    Drugs and guns… All two does move together (along with other illegal activities.) They aren’t mutually exclusive. You get one, you bounds to have the other moving about in de same country.

    But in a very large percentage of drugs arrests guns aren’t found @ Joel C. Payne. Unfortunately Barbados Laws showed how emeable they can be. The British Male seeking a career in Law allowed to not only go free with an unblemished record he was allowed to continue his holiday then returned to the UK and no more said. Possible the standard Bds$750.

    I think there is something much bigger going on with this marijuana PLANT. I think that in the end the fight is not to destroy it but to take control. There are many greedy people in this world and to you dumb, out of control, mentally enslaved stupid police your judgement in life have already started, can’t you see, Divine nature is getting back at you in this new paradyme you will all die out prematurely as well as your family. You are no different from the old roman soldiers. In this life they tricked you told you you have power when in actual fact you dont you are like a pawn on a chess board. They are only putting you to fight against your own cant you see its your own FUNERAL you are creating and that system which you are a part of will fall and you and your families along with it. Look for the GUNS.You are mixing up the gun trade with the herb trade.

    Wow. $750 for 15 wrapping of cannabis. I forgot magistrates, cps prosecutors, defence attorneys, case managers, police, ushers, security personal, stenographers, administrators, etc all need to be paid. Value for money. You keep clogging the judicial system with minuscule amounts of the cannabis yet white collar crime is rampant in Barbados, look at CLICO, look at the land scandals, look at the corruption charges against known police officials, look at St Joseph hospital, look at Greenland etc Ignorance ain’t sense. I understand it is an offence but look at what you allow to slide with tax payers money in the millions. When will you wake up and have a look at legislation and sentencing guidelines on possession.
