Bail for two charged with drug offences


Two Bico employees charged in connection with conspiring to traffick in $2 million worth of drugs were released on $30 000 bail when they appeared in the District A Magistrates’ Court.

Nathan Jordan Gooding, 26, a casual worker of Bayfield, St Philip and Harvey Kurvin Martindale, a 44-year-old senior supervisor of Upstairs No. 40 Husbands Terrace, St James, were not required to plead to conspiring with others to traffic in cannabis on March 27.

Martindale was solely charged with engaging in money laundering and not being an authourised dealer offering for sale US$8 797 on March 29.

Despite objections to their bail from the prosecution, Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes released each accused on $30 000 bail, confiscated their travel documents, ordered them to report to a police station thrice weekly and imposed a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

The two accused will reappear at District A on September 7 while Martindale appears at Holetown on July 17. (HLE)
