A 46-year-old man is $1,500 out of pocket after he was caught with 14 cocaine rocks in his possession.
Ryan O’neal Gittens, of Alkins Land, St Michael, pleaded guilty before Magistrate Douglas Frederick to having the illegal drug in his possession yesterday.
According to Sergeant Edwin Pinder, the cocaine rocks were seen in “plain view on a television stand” when police executed a search warrant at his home.
However, having been ordered to pay a fine for the drugs, Gittens is scheduled to return before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on Friday to clear an outstanding balance on a $3,000 fine, dating back to 2010.
He told the magistrate today that he had so far paid $1,600 of the amount owed to the Crown.
