Joseph Myvett

A coastguard officer finds himself on the other side of the law tonight after he was arraigned today for the crime of possession of a controlled drug. Just before seven p.m. on Thursday, twenty-five-year-old Lenard Flores was searched during a routine preventative patrol, also known as a stop and search. Inside a bag he was carrying, police discovered over fifty grams of weed.
