Police charge man found with over 60 small bags of weed

Not the marijuana mentioned in the story

BVI News understands that a man was recently slapped with cannabis-related charges after police caught him with more than sixty small parcels of marijuana.

The cops are said to believe the weed was packaged for sale.

The incident reportedly happened some time last week at a nightclub in Purcell Estate. However, it is not clear whether the accused resides in that community.

Police officers in the area allegedly smelled a strong scent coming from a vehicle and asked the driver’s permission to search.

It’s further reported that during the search, more than 60 small bags of marijuana were found by the law enforcers. After the discovery, the accused reportedly denied ownership of the vehicle and parcels of weed.

However, reports reaching our news centre is that the accused admitted ownership of the drugs after he was arrested by the police.

BVI News hasn’t been able to ascertain the exact weight of the drugs but it is reportedly under one kilogram.

It’s also unclear whether the accused will appear in court to answer the drug-related charges against him.

    the pink people continue to live, trade, make money and smoke freely never ever having to worry about the law.

    BVI laws are for local only. What an a clear violation of unequal application of law.

    Hello! We are here thinking about letting someone come here to promote canabis cultivation as an industry, but one of our locals is here now going thru our judiciary for having a little of it. Where is the scale of justice? No wonder the governor wont listen to you all. He realize all you devious and crooked. The young man should be the first to be introduced to whoever you are expecting to initiate this so called economic pillow,and infacts to receive the first plot of the donated land. So strike the balance now
