“Horse” free of marijuana possession

Jermaine "Horse" Garnett

A police foul up has resulted in a drug trafficking case against the well known street figure, Jermaine “Horse” Garnett being thrown out. On May twenty-second, 2011, Garnett was accused of trafficking a half pound of weed after police claimed they saw him throw two plastic bags of cannabis out of his Kia Sportage vehicle.  At the start of trial on Tuesday, George Ferguson, the officer who claims he saw Garnett in the act, told the court that it happened at around five minutes after ten o’clock that morning as they pursued the vehicle from Tibruce Street to Mahogany Street. Ferguson testified that while he retrieved the bag, the other officers continued to chase Garnett and caught on Caesar Ridge Road. But on Ferguson’s chain of custody form, he said that bust occurred at eight-forty-five a.m.; that’s over an hour before the incident happened.  Based on this discrepancy, Garnett’s attorney, Anthony Sylvester, made a no case submission, which was upheld by Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith, who dismissed the charge.
