On Friday night, the entertainer George Nooks was reportedly arrested for cocaine possession.

Reports are that at approximately 9:00 pm, police were conducting an operation in Widcombe Heights, St Andrew when they observed Nooks – who lives in the community – acting in a manner that aroused their suspicion.

Police say, the God Is Standing By singer was walking towards his Mercedes Benz SUV with a brown paper bag in his hand and, as detectives approached him, he opened the vehicle and threw the paper bag inside.

“He was accosted and (the) bag he was carrying searched; the bag was found to contain just under two ounces of cocaine,” police said.

Nooks was subsequently arrested and charged for breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.

He has been offered bail in the sum of $80,000 and is to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Wednesday, May 17.
