Couple busted for weed

Jervin Robinson

Tonight, twenty-three year old Jervin Robinson and his girlfriend, Jessica Sinclair, are remanded at the Belize Central Prison for drug trafficking. The charges were levied following the discovery of seventy-two grams of cannabis at their residence in Belama.  The couple appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Dale Cayetano on Wednesday where joint charges were brought against them.  Robinson was additionally charged with one count of possession of a controlled drug after being caught in the act of rolling up a joint.

In court, they both pleaded not guilty to the offenses and were offered bail in the sum of five thousand dollars each, plus one surety of the same amount.  But by the close of business on Wednesday neither of the two was able to post bond and were instead remanded to Hattieville until May ninth, when they are due back in court.

    Don’t worry, based on recent stories, you can continue your drug dealing business right there in the security of Kolbe prison. Everyone else does it!
