Jonathan Sammy, a 30 year old power mower operator, today pleaded guilty to charges of possession of marijuana and possession of an apparatus when he appeared before the Port of Spain 8th Magistrate Court.

Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-Caesar postponed the matter to Tuesday 14th June, 2016, at which time the accused will be sentenced.

On Thursday 9th June, 2016, Sammy, an employee of Sikas Engineering Ltd, of Caparo, was stopped by Special Branch Officers, stationed at the security checkpoint towards the residence of the Prime Minister, at La Fantasie Road, St Anns. He was at the time the driver of a station wagon vehicle and was proceeding along the driveway to the compound of the residence.

During a search of the vehicle, the driver was found to be in possession of an apparatus, commonly known as a ‘grinder’ which contained a small quantity of loose plant like material, resembling marijuana.
