Ice cream shop manager scoops up pot plea deal
July 03, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Martin Abinader

The manager of a Belmont ice cream shop pleaded no contest Wednesday to selling marijuana that he placed in a single-scoop cup for customers.

Martin Abinader, 20, of San Carlos, was given 90 days jail after pleading no contest to two counts of selling marijuana to an undercover police officer in April. He has credit of two days toward the term earned before posting $30,000 bail and can spend the remainder in the Project 90 treatment program.

The settlement is “a reasonable disposition in this day and age,” said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Abindar had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing in August but changed his plea at a review conference Wednesday afternoon.

Abindar managed the Baskin-Robbins store on the 1000 block of Alameda de las Pulgas. After a Carlmont High School resource officer received a tip that Abinader was dealing drugs in the shop, Belmont police sent an undercover officer with a wire into the business at 6 p.m. April 8. Abindar retrieved marijuana from his car outside the store and placed $50 worth in a ice cream cup which he then put into a Baskin-Robbins bag. Ninety minutes later the same officer returned and purchased $100 although the sale happened in Abinader’s vehicle.

Police arrested Abinader after that transaction and reported finding hash and a small amount of cocaine, too.
