Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, presiding in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, yesterday ordered Ricardo Orlando Streeks to undergo an assessment by experts at the Psychiatric Hospital for the next three weeks.
This ruling was made after Streeks, 41, of Hill Road, Bank Hall, St Michael, pleaded guilty to possession of 0.4 grammes of cannabis with a $5 street value.
Streeks was arrested while walking along Roebuck Street, the City yesterday after police responded to a report that an unknown male was harassing patrons at Rubis, Harmony Hall, St Michael, but had later left.
He was found after lawmen conducted a search of the immediate area. He was searched and a “white paper wrapper” was found in his left back pocket. He was subsequently charged for possession of marijuana.
Streeks is expected back in court on June 20, 2016.
