    Marijuana, ecstasy, ketamine, magic mushrooms, a stolen TV and more than $1,000 in cash were seized during a 2007 police raid on a Donegal Street home in 2007, court heard.

    Cory James, 25, pleaded guilty yesterday in Ontario Court of Justice to possession of ketamine for the purpose of trafficking and possessing marijuana and was sentencd to 90 days in jail.

    He also pleaded guilty, in an unrelated matter, to possessing a stolen licence plate and breaching his probation.

    Police executed a drug search at the Donegal Street residance Jan. 4, 2007.

    Officers seized 10.5 grams of ketamine, also known as “special K,” 251 grams of marijuana, seven ecstasy tablets, a quantity of magic mushrooms and $1,080 in cash, federal prosecutor Mauro DiCarlo said.

    In addition to the jail time, which he will serve on weekends, James was placed on probation for one year.

    DiCarlo withdrew charges against co-accused Amber Lockman, 21.

    Question: Why would you keep that much drugs in your house at once?
    Also: 90 days? I thought it was longer than that - especially for the amount of drugs listed.

    The most important changes are:

    • The news forums may contain news articles only
    • Make sure you include all the text from the original article. Don't just post the URL because web pages often disappear or get moved over time. Remove all unnecessary formatting from the text before posting. One easy way to do this is to paste the text into notepad or another text editor first, which will remove any formatting. Also try to remove picture captions, advertisement links and other text that doesn't belong to the body of the article.

    Further it may be good to know that recent articles with the highest thread ratings show up on the main news page. So without ratings, many people will not see it. So please rate news treads.
