Two get community service for weed

courtTwo St James residents who admitted to having small quantities of marijuana will each have to perform 80 hours of community service.

Romario Ricardo Watson, 22, of #2 Morne Close, Thorpes, and Cardinal Courtney Webster, 24, of 1st Avenue Thorpes, pleaded guilty to the offences when they appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court Tuesday.

According to the facts presented by the prosecutor, the two men were in a car when police stopped the vehicle.

It was while they were stopping that lawmen observed Webster, who was in the front passenger seat, throwing a plastic bag out the window.

It was retrieved, examined, and found to contain the illegal substance that had an estimated $15 street value.

Watson, the driver of the vehicle, had $20 worth of cannabis. It was found in the compartment of the driver’s door.

When police asked him to account for it, he reportedly said: “Sir, to be honest, I don’t know about them.”

The two return to court on January 19, 2017.
