A 52-year-old man, who confessed to having cocaine paraphernalia in his pocket, will know his fate in 28 days.
David Alleyne Pryme, of no fixed place of abode, pleaded guilty to having a metal scrapper in his possession while on Villa Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael earlier today.
Pryme, who was already on $3,000 bail for a wounding charge, allegedly told police at the time: “I does use that when smoking cocaine chief. Man give me a break.”
However, when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court this afternoon, the accused told Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant that the officer had found a “piece of wire” in his pocket and not a scrapper.
“I smoke cocaine . . . . It is a habit I have for over 30 years,” Pryme revealed.
He was remanded to Dodds until his sentencing on May 16.
