One of the six men, who were remanded to Dodds in connection with the seizure of 800 pounds of cannabis, is out on bail.
David Edward Forde, of Risk Road, Fitts Village, St James, was unable to secure $1million bail on his first appearance before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant on June 20.
However, this was not the case today as he was able to walk out of the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court after the magistrate accepted his $900,000 surety.
The 50-year-old is accused of committing a preparatory act for the purpose of trafficking cannabis, as well as trafficking of the drug on June 14.
Forde, who is represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder, was not required to plead to the indictable charges.
As part of his bail conditions, the accused must now report to the Black Rock Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon with valid identification and must get the permission of the court before leaving the jurisdiction.
His co-accused 54-year-old Raoul Hardat Singh, of Strathclyde Drive, St Michael; 19-year-old Joshua Aaron Singh, of No. 24 Coral Land, Haggatt Hall, St Michael; 50-year-old Richard Trevor Nurse, of Fifth Avenue, Holders Land, Brandons, St Michael; 46-year-old Dale Eugene Gill, of No. 26 Oleander Drive, Enterprise, Christ Church, and 44-year-old Ryan O’Neal Griffith, of Lucas Street, St Philip, who are facing other charges, are currently on remand at the St Philip penal institution.
The accused men are scheduled to make their next appearance before Cuffy-Sargeant on July 28.
