Man fined after admitting to drug possession

A Bimini man was yesterday ordered to pay fines totaling $4,000 after he admitted to having drugs with the intent to supply.

Stephen Lester Davis, 58, of Bailey Town, was arrested on February 16 near Resorts World Bimini, prosecutor Sergeant Lincoln McKenzie told the court.

Davis was getting out of his car when he looked at police officers and began behaving in a suspicious manner, McKenzie said. Police searched Davis and found a dollar bill with cocaine inside and marijuana in his car.

The officers arrested Davis and took him to his home for another search, where they found more cocaine and marijuana.

In total, police seized a little over two pounds of marijuana and two ounces of cocaine, McKenzie said.

Police also seized $1,361.80, which they said was the proceeds of drug sales.

Davis pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply at his arraignment before Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.

His lawyer, Dion Smith, said that Davis pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity and was sorry for his actions.

Swain confiscated the money and ordered Davis to pay the fine to avoid spending one year in prison.
