Man with drugs for personal use, gets six months probation


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN was put on six months probation after he admitted to having a quantity of cocaine and marijuana for his personal use earlier this month.

Magistrate Shaka Serville charged Tyreke Stuart, 26, with two counts of possession of dangerous drugs.

Stuart was arrested in New Providence after he was found with one gram of cocaine and 5 grams of marijuana on December 18.

After pleading guilty to the charges, Stuart asked the court for help with his drug habit.

Magistrate Serville granted him a conditional discharge when he will be put on six-months probation. During this time, he must attend drug counselling. Should he default on these conditions, he will be sent to prison.
