Benjamin Brookhoff, who came to these shores with his parents on cruise line “AIDA” disembarked the ship about 1 p.m. and went to the Harbour Club area. Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers on mobile patrol in the area spotted the defendant, who appeared to be acting suspiciously.

The officers approached Brookhoff and requested a search on him and found the cannabis in his right front pants pocket. The officers cautioned him and he told them that he bought it from a man. He was then arrested and charged.

Brookhoff apologised to the court for his actions.
