Carpenter offers to fix up police station

COURT TODAY BLOCKJason Anderson Thelius has until June 17 to complete 240 hours of community service.

The 32-year-old unemployed man was ordered to do so by Magistrate Douglas Frederick after he appeared in court today and confessed to having cannabis and apparatus on March 11.

Sergeant Martin Rock told the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court that when police carried out a search at Thelius’ 2nd Avenue Johnson Land, Green Hill, St Michael home, they found a 20 inch cannabis plant in his backyard.

A calabash bowl was also discovered by lawmen with loose marijuana, as well as marijuana seeds, stalks and leaves inside.

They also confiscated three small scales and a scissors from the residence.

Thelius later told police he thought he had gotten rid of all the cannabis from his yard.

“I want to know if I could pay a fee or something to get over this hey, cause I got a lil’ man and a lil’ girl to tek care uh,” the convicted man told Magistrate Frederick today, as he appealed for leniency.

Asked whether he works, Thelius replied that he did so “off and on”. He also said that he did not get involved in crime.

However, when asked by the magistrate to explain, Thelius said he meant that he had never been involved in “robbery nor nutten so”.

“I trying to make this here sound sweet, but I can’t mek it sound sweet, because in wunna eyes it illegal,” he added.

When Magistrate Frederick told the first time offender he was considering community service for him, Thelius volunteered to work on the cells at Central Police Station, which he said, “want working ‘pon. I is a carpenter and a mason. I could do dat dey fuh wunna,” he said. “Cause all weekend they had me in dey with four [homosexual] men. Dah din cool at all,”
Thelius remarked.

    I will give Magistrate Fredericks the props for actually considering an alternate to the fine, for a first timer.

    Then I will collapse laughing and be fully ashamed of myself for finding the man’s comment about being locked in with homosexuals hilarious … Raise yuh hand fella, raise yuh hand.
