Man Admits To Possession But Not Illegal Weapon

A 41 year old Saint John man has admitting to having cocaine---but not to possession of an unlawful weapon.

Kenneth Ward of Charlotte Street was found with 17 rocks of crack valued at $340, $120 in cash, and two cell phones when he was searched by police last summer. The investigating officer also found a switchblade-like knife, which could be illegal.

It's up to the court to decide whether the specific knife found on Ward is prohibited by law and if the cocaine was for the purpose of trafficking.
