Tyson arrested with drugs on pleasure boat

Kelvin Tyson walked into the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today with three previous drug convictions to his name and pleaded guilty to a fourth.

The 38-year-old of Spooners Hill, St Michael chalked up his latest offence while on a Jolly Roger pleasure cruise today. After being caught by the vessel’s security with four grammes of cannabis worth $20 while on the top deck, Tyson will be out of pocket by $1,500.

Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant ordered him to pay the fine in two weeks or spend eight months at HMP Dodds. The magistrate also instructed the father of two to return to court on August 5 with the receipt as proof that he paid the money.

Tyson, who was recently accepted by the Ministry of Agriculture as a registered farmer, expressed regret at the incident.

    Its a common sense thing. I dont smoke, I never have and I never will… But its illegal and wunna know its illegal, yet still people still walk bout with it and bring it to places where they know it will be a problem. You know you getting charged and fling in Dodds for it, yet you taking it to events where police barley waiting to search you in hopes of finding it. Then want to complain and be vex when it gets taken away and you have to out money. Idiots

    So his family has 1,500$ less on the food table because he did something that doesn´t harm anyone. Beautiful.
