Jet ski operator caught growing ganja backyard

A jet ski operator was yesterday fined $600 forthwith with an alternative of three months at HMP Dodds for unlawful possession of marijuana.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick handed down the sentence after John Goddard Wood, 27, of Deacons Main Road, St Michael pleaded guilty in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No. 1.

Wood was arrested after police executed a search warrant at his home around 6:15 a.m. on Wednesday.

A two-foot tall marijuana plant, with an estimated street value of $70, was found as lawmen search his yard.

Wood admitted ownership and knowledge of the cannabis.

In her submission, Wood’s attorney-at-law Angela Mitchell-Gittens urged the court to be as lenient as possible with her client as the quantity of the drug did not suggest that it was for commercial but personal use.

“It wasn’t purpose work, Sir,” Wood, told the magistrate, adding, “I saw it in the yard young, so I never used it.”

Wood was convicted, reprimanded and discharged for cultivated of marijuana.

He returns to court on December 6.
