Man admits cannabis offences

A Sandys man admitted cannabis possession this morning after the substance was discovered in his car, his house and his waistband.

Levi Robinson, 48, was driving along Cricket Lane in Somerset when he was stopped by police at the junction with Broome Street on November 25, 2012.

As officers began to perform a search, the defendant advised them to check in the trunk of the car, where they found one plastic twist and one paper twist.

After being arrested, Robinson was seen in his police cell removing a quantity of cannabis from his waistband and trying to destroy it with his feet.

Upon searching his residence, officers found more plantlike material, which was later confirmed as cannabis along with the other samples.

Although Robinson at first denied any knowledge of the drugs, which weighed a combined 24.48 grams, he later admitted that they belonged to him.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo spoke of his wariness in granting the defendant bail, pointing out that the last time this happened he went “missing for two years”.

However, taking into account Robinson's guilty plea, his lack of previous convictions and the small quantities of cannabis in question, Mr Tokunbo released him on $5,000 bail with a like surety.

As well as ordering a Social Inquiry Report and a drug assessment, Mr Tokunbo instructed the defendant to report to police every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until his sentencing on July 22.
