Spirited pleas for bail were not enough to stop the five men charged with drug offences following the seizure of nearly a ton of marijuana at Fitts Village, St James, on Sunday night, from being remanded yesterday to HMP Dodds Prisons until April 11.
The five – Marlon Smith, 33, of St Michael; Colvin Brathwaite, 41, of Christ Church; Neverline Springer, 31, of St Michael; Dwayne Reeves, 30, of St Michael; Wayne  Charles, 43, of St Michael – appeared in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court, St James, before Magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne.
They are jointly charged with unlawful possession of 2 044 lbs of cannabis estimated at BDS$4 million; possession with intent to supply; trafficking and importation of the said illegal substance.
Smith was separately charged with illegal possession of a firearm and importation of a firearm without a licence. Under the law, those charged with gun offences have to apply to the High Court for bail.
