Man Wants to Plead Guilty but Says Drugs Aren’t His

Fifty-four-year-old Herman Reyes of LaCroix Boulevard is out on bail for a drug trafficking charge. Police on Thursday found two separate parcels of cannabis together weighing just over half a pound. But according to Reyes, the marijuana is not his; he does not smoke it, nor does he sell it, as is alleged by police. Nonetheless, he was willing to plead guilty to possession of a controlled substance, the lesser charge. Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer entered an equivocal plea of not guilty after the court prosecutor indicated she would need to make checks with her office before she could accept the guilty plea. Reyes met bail of three thousand dollars. Special Patrol Unit police searched Reyes’ house and recovered a black plastic bag containing suspected cannabis from his chest of drawers and another plastic bag in a carton box. He is due back in court on May twenty-fifth.
