Three people were cleared of drug charges on Tuesday, February 23, when Ryan Michael Cole, 21, took the rap for 156.9 grams of marijuana found at their Tibruce Street home.

Acting upon information received, police searched a residence at #1108 Tibruce Street on Saturday, February 20, and found 156.9 grams of marijuana. As a result, the occupants present at the time were all arrested. They are Ryan Michael Cole, Conrad Lewis Cole, 24, Alex Thyler Broaster, 20, and Derrick Pineda, 25. The group appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith on Tuesday to face a charge of drug trafficking.

In court, Ryan Cole chose to take the rap for the weed. For the offense of drug trafficking, the Chief Magistrate imposed a non-custodial sentence in a fine of $10,000. She ordered him to pay $3,000 forthwith or serve one year imprisonment in default. The balance of $7,000 he must pay by the end of June 2017 or serve two more years. The charge was then withdrawn from the other three accused. However, court record showed that Broaster owed the court $305 for fines from back in 2013 which he failed to pay and Pineda owed the court $30. The Chief Magistrate ordered them to pay all outstanding fines before they could go.
