An Anse La Raye father was fined $2,500 or in default 45 days at Bordelais for possession of a controlled substance – cannabis and possession with intent to supply a controlled substance – cannabis.

On October 19, acting on a tip, police held Collymore near the corner of Church street and St Louis Street in the district. According to PC 545 Charles, search of a bag in the defendant’s possession revealed the illegal substance.

Subsequent to this, Collymore was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to supply, to which he replied: “I don’t have any intention of supplying anyone.”

Before handing down her judgement, Magistrate Charon Gardner, stated that she was worried about the fact that Collymore was unwilling to attend Turning Point although he had a problem.  She also mentioned the existence of an adult son, whom still needs a role model and mentor.

In sentencing Collymore, Gardner stated that because of his early guilty plea, co-operation, and the fact that the offense is a non-violent one, she had decided to fine him $2,500 on the charge of possession.  This fine is payable by January 15.

On the charge of possession with intent to supply, Gardner ordered one year of probation, during which time Collymore is ordered to attend men’s counselling and parenting classes.

  1. I believe St.Lucians need to realize that their actions are what will determine the future of this country.We keep on destroying the social and physical environment of the only place we can warmly refer to as home.Our development on an international scale is minimal.Where are the parents who need to keep the family together? Where are the teachers,pastors,community folks who are supposed to pass on moral values to our youth? Where are the clubs ?
    I am so confused by the alarming crime rate...too sad to cry for my country.
