A 59-year-old contractor, who allegedly escaped police custody, will spend the next 28 days at HMP Dodds.
Herwin Llewellyn Burrowes, of Taylor Gap, Delmere Land, Belmont Road, St Michael, was arrested on June 9 for possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cannabis before he allegedly escaped “with the use of force”.
He pleaded guilty to the drug charges, but not guilty to assaulting and resisting police constable Jabari Mayers in the execution of his duties on the same date.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge of escaping lawful custody at Temple Yard, St Michael.
Despite a bail application by his attorney, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant remanded Burrowes until August 17, based on the seriousness of the offence and the allegation that he escaped with the use of force.
