A 31-year-old man, who was recorded as having no fixed place of abode, will spend the night at HMP Dodds after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on two drug related charges.
Chavon Kamar Trotman pleaded guilty before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant to possession of cocaine and apparatus on October 1.
Trotman became jittery after police, who were on duty along Suttle Street St Michael, approached him.
As a result of his behaviour, a search was requested, but before that could commence Trotman reportedly pushed his hand in his pocket and pulled out a small Pringles tin, place it on a table, and stepped away from the container which had in a number of white stones, suspected to be cocaine, as well as some white residue.
“Some is mine,” he reportedly said when asked to account for the drugs.
Today, Trotman’s attorney Lani Daisley informed the magistrate that while her client was listed as has having no fixed place of abode he lived at Westbury Road, St Michael.
However Cuffy-Sargeant said Trotman, who has no prior convictions, needed someone to verify that he stays at the address. He was unable to do so before the day’s sitting came to a close.
Therefore, he was remanded until tomorrow when he returns to court.
