$20,000 drug fine

good report saves drug convict from stiffer penalty

COURT TODAY BLOCKA St Michael man who was found guilty of four drug offences on September 4, returned before Magistrate Douglas Frederick in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No.1 today.

After hearing evidence during the trial, the magistrate found Damien Kelvin Walrond, 33, guilty of possession, trafficking, cultivation and intent to supply marijuana.

Today, he was fined $20,000 for cultivation, payable in six months, with an alternative of 18 months imprisonment. He was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on each of the remaining three counts.

The court heard that when police went to Walrond’s Roberts Road, Halls Road, St. Michael residence to execute a warrant, they found 26 marijuana plants, along with a loose quantity of cannabis and seeds.

A presentencing report was ordered on the convicted man when he last appeared. That report, which was a good one, was taken into consideration today before he was sentenced.
