Kelvin Tyson walked into the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today with three previous drug convictions to his name and pleaded guilty to a fourth.
The 38-year-old of Spooners Hill, St Michael chalked up his latest offence while on a Jolly Roger pleasure cruise today. After being caught by the vessel’s security with four grammes of cannabis worth $20 while on the top deck, Tyson will be out of pocket by $1,500.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant ordered him to pay the fine in two weeks or spend eight months at HMP Dodds. The magistrate also instructed the father of two to return to court on August 5 with the receipt as proof that he paid the money.
Tyson, who was recently accepted by the Ministry of Agriculture as a registered farmer, expressed regret at the incident.
