– but lives to rue it

A 53-year-old Craig Street, Campbellville man was on Thursday remanded to prison by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for narcotics trafficking after being busted with cocaine in his freezer.

Andrew Jordan, who was represented by attorney-at-law Stanley Moore, denied that on Monday, September 17, 2018 at his Campbellville home, he had 100 grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

Custom Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) prosecutor, Kunyo Sandiford opposed to Jordan being released on bail, citing the seriousness of the charge, and the oral caution statement the accused gave admitting to the offence.

According to the facts presented in court, CANU ranks acting on a ‘Tip-off’ went to Jordan’s home, and on conducting a search in his presence found the illicit drugs stashed in a container in his refrigerator.

Under caution, Jordan admitted ownership of the drugs and told the officers that he had taken a chance.

The Chief Magistrate ruled in favour of the prosecution’s objection and remanded Jordan to prison until October 8.
