Belmont Baskin Robbins manager pleads no contest to marijuana sales

The man accused of trying to introduce an illicit new flavor at a Belmont Baskin Robbins pleaded no contest to the charges Wednesday, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Martin Hanna Abinader, 20, of San Carlos sold marijuana to an undercover Belmont police officer on two occasions April 8 from the Baskin Robbins location where he worked as a manager.

Police had heard from a local high school that the manager at the nearby Baskin Robbins had been dealing marijuana.

When the officer went inside to buy marijuana, Abinader went out to his black BMW parked outside and retrieved $50 worth of marijuana and came back into the store and put it in a single scoop cup and Baskin Robbins bag, Wagstaffe said.

The officer came back about 90 minutes later and bought $100 worth of weed. That transaction occurred inside Abinader’s BMW. Upon his arrest, police found that he had a bit of cocaine and hash in his possession.

Abinader pleaded no contest Wednesday to two felony counts of marijuana sales on the condition of no state prison and 90 days in County Jail.

He will be on five years of supervised probation and have to complete a residential treatment program.

Abinader is currently out of custody on $30,000 bail, Wagstaffe said, and will begin his 90-day sentence Aug. 23 with credit for two days served.Baskin RobbinsBay Area NewsBelmontCrimeCrime & CourtsMartin Hanna Abinader
