A man who was caught carrying a set of brass knuckles was today fined $500.

Akeem Trott, 35, from Pembroke, pleaded guilty to having the weapon when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court today.

The court heard that in December 2021, Trott was taken to the Hamilton Police Station for an unrelated matter.

He was searched at the station and the weapon was found in his right pants pocket.

Trott apologised to the court and told magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo that the incident will never happen again.

Trott was given a conditional discharge today after he also admitted breaching Coronavirus curfew regulations in April 2021.

Mr Tokunbo said that if Trott paid another $500 fine, the offence would not be on his criminal record.

Trott was given until February 8 to pay both fines.
