A MAN was fined $1,000 after admitting to having more than eight ounces of marijuana in his Bain Town home last week.

Magistrate Samuel McKinney charged Francisco St Vil, 43, with possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

St Vil was arrested after police found him with 8 5/8 oz of marijuana in his home in the Bain Town area on November 23. Police also confiscated $110 from the defendant, believed to be the proceeds of crime.

After St Vil pleaded guilty to the offence, he was ordered to pay a fine of $1,000 or risk six months in prison. He was further told that the money seized during his initial arrest would remain forfeited to the Crown.
