Crack in the club

Alvin Diamonds

Four persons, including a senior citizen, have been arrested for a small quantity of crack cocaine found stashed away at Mike’s Club in Belize City. The four persons include the owner of the club, eighty-four year old Alvin Diamonds, bartenders, twenty year old Kamisha Ariola and fifty year old Ernest Brown as well as fifty eight year old Douglas Patterson.  The four were arraigned in court this morning and are to return to court in August.

The charge of drug trafficking was read to them and they pleaded not guilty. Diamonds asked Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer what the charge meant and he was told that and he either had the drugs in his possession or was found in possession of the crack cocaine.  Diamonds said he had no knowledge of the drugs and he also took a not guilty plea.  According to a GSU report, in the search on Thursday they found twenty grams of crack cocaine in transparent plastic bags in a red bucket. There were twelve persons in different areas of the club, but the four accused were behind the counter and were taken in by the cops.

  1. now i see says:

    This is so stupid. The poor old man dont have a clue of why they arrested him. You could see that the bartender was selling it. Like every other bar all over the country. This law have to change other wise you will have to search for drugs whoever goes into your house, car,church or business. Sometimes we need a little more common sense than stupid laws.
