Cop sentenced for dealing in ganja
A policeman who was held by his colleagues along the Nelson Mandela Highway in St Andrew with more than 100 pounds of ganja was fined $500,000 plus 12 months' imprisonment when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday.
He is Inspector Dale Isaacs, a cop who is attached to the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) Mobile Reserve.
When he appeared in court, he was fined $15,000 or 30 days for possession of ganja, and for dealing in ganja, he was fined $500,000 or six months plus 12 months' imprisonment.
In 2014, Isaacs was held by members of the JCF Anti-Corruption Branch along the Nelson Mandela Highway in St Andrew with ganja weighing more than 100 pounds in his private motor car.
He was subsequently arrested and charged with breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
