Reports coming out of Barbados states that police carried out a search at the home of Levi Nathaniel Browne and found four marijuana plants growing in an old refrigerator.

Browne, who worked as a well digger while in Barbados pleaded guilty last Friday to possession, trafficking, cultivating and intent to supply the drugs.

It was also reported that police did not find any record of Browne’s entry nor stay in Barbados.

Magistrate Christopher Birch, sitting at the District C Magistrate’s Court, remanded Browne until Monday for sentencing.

The 52-year-old was convicted, remanded and discharged on all four drug offences.

He was however handed over to the Immigration Department.

The convicted man was also ordered to pay his passage home.
