Khalil Anderson Chandler knew he was out after hours when he was trying to get a ride from Warrens to St Lucy.

“I know I was breaching curfew but I missed the last bus,” he told the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Chandler, a 32-year-old roofer of Josey Hill, St Lucy, had just pleaded guilty to contravening Paragraph 1, Subparagraph (3) of the Emergency Management COVID-19 Protocols Special Curfew No. 2 Directive 2021, in that there being a directive requiring every person to observe such social distancing and associated protocols in the interest of public health, he failed to comply by leaving his home between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. as specified in Subparagraph (1), and he was not an employee or a member of the essential services or a person who had an emergency, on February 2.

He also admitted he had cannabis; a traffickable quantity of the drug; that he had the drug with intent to supply and that he had an apparatus for the misuse of cannabis, all on February 2.
