A 24-year-old St Michael woman, who had cocaine paraphernalia in her possession, will spend the next
three weeks at the Psychiatric Hospital undergoing an assessment.
Erica Gabrielle Codrington, of Alkins Land, Eagle Hall, pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick today to having the apparatus while on Bedford Lane, Roebuck Street, The City, yesterday.
Police were patrolling the area when they approached Codrington who was walking. Asked what she was carrying, she reportedly opened her clenched fist where a small glass bottle with a wire mesh to the top was concealed. It was then she also allegedly appealed to lawmen to give her a chance after admitting that the apparatus was a cocaine pipe which she used to smoke.
Today, Codrington was remanded to the Black Rock institution for doctors to determine whether she was a fit candidate for rehabilitation.
She returns to the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on April 30.
