Fine for man who trespassed on Government House land to smoke cannabis
A man who trespassed on Government House land to smoke cannabis was fined $600.
Luke Lindo, 29, from St George’s, appeared in Magistrates’ Court last week where he pleaded guilty to trespassing.
Cindy Clarke, for the Crown, said the incident happened on November 6 and that Lindo had turned himself in near the entrance gate of the Governor’s residence. When questioned, Lindo told officers that he had entered the property to smoke cannabis.
He said he got in by cutting through some bushes and claimed not to see any “No Trespassing” signs. He said he believed it was a public place.
Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson fined him $600 and warned him to never enter the property again.
