Footballer caught with cannabis
A talented young footballer who was caught with a small amount of cannabis in has possession has been given a conditional discharge.
Kamali Davis was with several friends in a car driving along Kindley Field on January 1 this year when the vehicle was stopped by police.
Officers searched the passengers due to the smell of marijuana and Davis, 19, was taken back to Hamilton Police Station.
A small wrap of cannabis, which weighed just over four grams, was found on Davis after a search.
Davis, who has no previous convictions, later pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis.
