Five years after pleading not guilty to three drug offences, Ryan Anthony Maynard had a change of heart yesterday in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.
The 31-year-old unemployed man, of 166 A Regency Park, Christ Church, was charged with unlawful possession of cannabis, trafficking and intent to supply the unlawful drug on December 8, 2012.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Glenda Carter-Nicholls told the court that police executed a search warrant at Maynard’s residence as a result of information received. In the bedroom, they found a three-quarter black pants and in the right front pocket they found a transparent plastic bag containing seeds, a loose quantity of vegetable matter suspected to be cannabis and 18 grease-proof wrappings.
At the time he was placed on $3 000 bail.
After changing his plea to guilty, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant reprimanded and discharged him for possession and intent to supply, but fined him $1 000 for trafficking. (RA)
