Man accidentally drops marijuana stash at Police Headquarters

Police Headquarters on American Road

Antigua News Room- A man who accidently dropped his bag of marijuana at Police Headquarters was fined for having more than the legal limit in his possession.


Sameto Dias (not to be mistaken with his brother Samito Dias, a local businessman) was brought in for questioning on Sunday after police received a call that he was involved in a domestic dispute.


The defendant was taken to the minor offences department and while there he asked to use the bathroom.


Police said as Dias began entering the restroom, he accidentally dropped a transparent plastic bag containing what appeared to be cannabis.


The defendant said the substance was his and police later discovered five small ziplock bags with cannabis in his vehicle.


The substance amounted to a total 26 grams, which is 11 grams more than the maximum 15 grams allowed.


The man was fined $700 or 1 month in prison after pleading guilty to possession of the drugs, which had an estimated street value of $260.

  1. Street value $260,fined $700.00.That is an abuse of the Law,in my opinion.Why so much being charged.How does the Court arrived at that figure,$700.00.

  2. Ignorance is no excuse to the law how wise, dumb and foolish anyone can be and with that said the court should have charged him $7000.00 instead of $700. 00. 7 years in prison for being so smart

  3. 11 grams over the limit….really. Stupes
    And what reason was his car searched. He was carrying a small legal amount on his person. They had no rhyme nor reason to invade his personal vehicle

  4. This person was taken to the station after a domestic dispute. He should have removed the stash from his person. Boastness worths nothing. Should have charged more.

  5. Badluck pan dem deh whole family. They all irresponsible. They keep nor care not. He not even look pan nor feed he 1 single pickney he have with rasta empress. Now fu pay $700 fa weed. Sad silly people. Is a curse pan dem.
