ComPol Says Confiscated Weed Edibles were Properly Handed Over

Were the confiscated cannabis edibles that created chaos at Saint Luke’s Methodist last week properly handed over as evidence to the police department?  That’s the question that was put to the Commissioner of Police when he sat down with the media this afternoon.  Here’s the latest on that investigation.

“The edibles or whatever you may want to call them, gummies, whatever they may be, were handed over with a diary in which the persons who handed it over described what was being handed over to the exhibit keeper.  It was just a matter for him to have signed the diary and received those items and from what we know, the items were properly handed over to him, and that’s it.”



“Are you thinking to bring charges anytime soon for anybody else?”


Chester Williams

“At this time, it is extremely difficult.  There are some of those persons who are involved in the selling.  While we do believe that they know that these edibles contained cannabis and, despite that, still sold it to children, it is not going to be easy for us to prove that they knew and so that may pose a hurdle to us.  But we‘re still looking to the investigation and if we should come across imperative evidence that they had knowledge and, despite that, still sold it to children then they too can be held to account.”
