Under heavy police guard convicted drug offender Stephen ‘Die’ Stubbs made his way into a Magistrates’ Court yesterday to face a drug related charge stemming from an incident back in April.

Stubbs and 12 other men are charged with conspiracy to possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply, possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply, and vagrancy.

In court, it was revealed that police seized 15 bags of marijuana from a property through Strachan’s Alley.

Back in April, Stubbs, along with his co-accused pleaded not guilty. However, one man who pleaded guilty claimed the others had nothing to do with the incident.

Police prosecutor Ercell Dorsette told the court that on April 9 officers arrived at the property with a search warrant and observed a group of men in the yard.

He said one man was seen removing something from the ground and moving it into a shack on the premises.
Officers retrieved the object and after discovering that it was a plastic bag filled with suspected marijuana took the men into police custody,

It was also revealed that Alvin Dumont, 26, of St James Road pleaded guilty to all three charges.

The other defendants were: Giovanni Cavan Roberts, of Strachan’s Alley off Kemp Road; Dominic Levanty, of Armbrister Street, Fox Hill; Charles Davis, of St Margaret Road; Navada Nairn of Commonwealth Boulevard; Gerald Davis of Samana Drive, Marathon Estates; Dwight Stuart, of Lyon Road; Tavaris Miller of Kemp Road; Ricardo Davis of Dunmore Street; Shathron Darville of Eastwood; Anton James Bastian of Abraham Street; and Keno Whymms of Abraham Street.

Roberts is not accused of the third charge of vagrancy.

The trial continues today at 10:00 a.m.

Just last month, Stubbs was sentenced to four years in prison for conspiracy to import and possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

According to the evidence that came up during the trial, the marijuana weighed nearly 4,000 pounds, came from Jamaica and was dropped off in Williams Town.

The drugs were worth more than $5.9 million dollars.
