A steel bender has two months to pay the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court a $1,500 fine.
And if Ricardo O’Neale Greenidge of 7th Avenue, Harts Gap, Christ Church fails to adhere to the order imposed by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, he will spend eight months in prison at Dodds.
Police were patrolling along Chelston Road, St Michael yesterday when they saw the 40-year-old standing among a group of men. As the lawmen exited their vehicle he began acting suspiciously before walking away from the group. He then threw an item over a galvanize paling. He was pursed, the package retrieved and the vegetable matter was discovered.
“That’s just a little herb I had to smoke,” Greenidge allegedly told police at the time.
The illicit drug weighed 8.5 grammes and had a $45 dollar street value.
