Man Denies Possessing Cannabis & Machete

September 23, 2015

Appearing in Magistrates Court, a 30-year-old man admitted refusing to take a police alcohol breathalyzer test, while denying separate charges of possessing cannabis and a machete.

Trovaughn Smith plead guilty to refusing to take a police alcohol breathalyzer test after police found him on Rural Drive in Paget, sleeping in his car with the car engine still running, in the early hours of 27th November 2014.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo fined him $800 for that offence and disqualified him from driving all vehicles for twelve months.

From the same police intervention, Mr Smith plead not guilty to being in an Increased Penalty Zone while possessing cannabis and, without lawful excuse, possessing a bladed article, namely a machete.

The Magistrate set trial on these two charges for 25th November.
