By BBN Staff: A Belize City man was fined in court this week after police found more than double the decriminalized amount of marijuana on him during a stop and search.

Twenty-eight-year-old Raheem McRowan appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate Court, charged with drug trafficking 28.36 grams of marijuana. Police say that they stopped and searched McRowan on Sunday, January 16, while he was on Mopan Street and after searching him he pulled the drugs from out of his pants.

In court, he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of possession simply, explaining to the court that he had no intention to supply marijuana to anyone else.

The court took into consideration that he immediately pleaded guilty to save time, and fined him $250 plus the Adderall $5 cost of court, which he needs to pay by March 15 or spend two months in jail.
