$1,500 ganja fine for Joseph

COURT TODAY BLOCKRecko Antonio Joseph confessed today to a Bridgetown magistrate that the ganja which police found at his home on Monday was his.

The 35-year-old, appearing before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No 2, pleaded guilty to possession, intent to supply, trafficking and cultivating the herb.

Acting on information received, police executed a search warrant at Joseph’s Whitehall #2, St Michael home, where they found a cakebox on a kitchen counter with a loose quantity of marijuana inside.

When lawmen searched outside, they found nine plants on his roof, in separate buckets.

Joseph admitted to police that the plants, which were one to four inches in height, and the loose cannabis, were his.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant fined Joseph $1,500 payable in three months with an alternative of six months in prison, on the counts of possession and cultivation.

He was reprimanded and discharged on the other two counts.
