His lawyer, Donahue Martin, told the Jamaica Observer that the singer is overjoyed to have gotten back his vehicle.

“He’s happy to get back his vehicle. But we take issue that it was taken in the first place because they had no need to take the vehicle,” he said.

He said the police searched the vehicle in the presence Nooks, and other lawyers on the case.

The 59-year-old singer was also arrested for an April 2019 incident and charged with possession of cocaine and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Allegations are that Nooks ingested “some substance” after being accosted by the police in Liguanea, St Andrew, in April 2019. He was taken to Kingston Public Hospital for observation and subsequently released.
