‘Spragga’ charged over phones, drugs intended for prison

A man of Paul’s Avenue will go to trial for allegedly trying to sneak cigarettes, marijuana, phones and razor blades into the prison. 

Farax ‘Spragga’ Prescott, 43 years old, contends with an injury to his foot that causes him to use crutches. Therefore, he was allowed a seat by the dock at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court (KMC) yesterday, February 21, in order to listen as Senior Magistrate, Rickie Burnett read the charge laid against him. 

The accusation levelled against the Paul’s Avenue resident is that on February 10, he did, without lawful authority, attempt to introduce into Her Majesty’s Prison: a black plastic bag containing two cellular phones, one black adapter, a black and white phone charger, a quantity of marijuana, one pack of Empire cigarettes, a quantity of cigarette lighters, a quantity of wrapping paper, one pack of razor blade, and one bottle containing liquid substance. These allegedly, surreptitiously introduced items are prohibited articles. 

Prescott, who was already on bail, informed the court that he is not guilty of the crime. 

He was free to leave the courtroom, with an order to return to the KMC on May 16 when it is possible that his trial will commence.
