The prosecution is contending that Ford was home alone when the narcotics was discovered. He lives at the address with his 21-year-old nephew.
In court on Monday, Ford told the court that on April 11 he went to bail a friend, who left a motorcycle in his care but when he returned home police ranks stormed his residence and conducted a search.
He said that the ranks then indicated to him that three motorcycle, a cellular phone and narcotics were found in his backyard.
He further stated the Police ceased his cellular phone and returned his SIM card to his family. “I do not deal with narcotics your honor,” Ford told the magistrate in his plea for bail.
Police Prosecutor Quinn Harris did not object to bail. He was released on $20,000 bail and the case will continue on April 29.
