Cocaine sends San Juan man back to jail
A San Juan man who was released from prison in 2010, was sentenced to 36 months hard labour after he pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana and cocaine, and producing a false driver’s permit. Wayne Mc Intosh, 51, a handyman from El Socorro Road Extension, reappeared before Magistrate Marcia Murray in the Port-of-Spain First Court on Thursday. The court heard that on August 11, officers executed a search warrant at Mc Intosh’s house and seized 9.4 grammes of marijuana, 2.06 grammes of cocaine, and two devices altered for the use of an illegal drug.
Mc Intosh also attempted to cash a cheque in the name of Ruben Hansraj in the amount of $110,000, drawn on the account of Tranquility Credit Union Co-Operative Society Ltd and produced a false driver’s permit in that name. For the possession of marijuana, cocaine and devices, Mc Intosh was sentenced to six months hard labour for each charge. For producing a false permit, Mc Intosh was sentenced to 18 months hard labour. The sentences are to run concurrently. The charges were laid by Sgt Learie Roach of the Fraud Squad.
