As the scandal surrounding the cocaine charges levied against George Nooks continues to mushroom, concert organisers have pulled the God is Standing By singer from an upcoming Mother's Day concert. 

 

Nooks was set to appear alongside local acts Sanchez and Romain Virgo, as well as American R&B act Freddie Jackson.

 

According to police reports, Nooks, 56, was held by narcotics detectives who were on operation in the Widcome Heights area of Kingston 6. The singer was reportedly observed acting in a manner that aroused their suspicion. He was accosted and a bag he was carrying searched; it was found to contain just under two ounces of cocaine. He was charged with breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act.

 

Nooks was offered station bail in the sum of $80,000 and is due to face the Kingston & St Andrew Parish Court on May 17.
