A man who recently had a robbery- under-arms charge dismissed is now in hot water again, after he was on Monday afternoon caught by Police at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts attempting to smuggle cigarettes and vodka into the Police lockups.Leon Smart, who was visiting a relative at the lockups, was caught with the items — two packs of cigarettes and vodka — hidden in a soda bottle in a black plastic bag.He was quickly handcuffed and escorted to the Brickdam Police Station, and is expected to be charged shortly.In November last, Smart was implicated in an armed robbery along with Kelvin Emper and Nzumi Scipio. However, Emper confessed to the crime, and told City Magistrate Judy Latchman that the other two accused had nothing to do with the crime.As such, Smart had that matter dismissed against him, while Emper was sentenced to 50 months in prison.
