A second man from a group of six charged in connection with the seizure of 800 pounds of cannabis, has been released from jail.
Earlier, Ryan Oneal Griffith, of Lucas Street, St Philip, was unable to secure the $1 million bail amount imposed by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant during his first court appearance on June 20.
However, this morning the magistrate accepted the three sureties totaling $900, 000, which were presented by his attorney Steve Gollop.
The 44-year-old DJ/promoter is accused of committing a preparatory act for the purpose of trafficking cannabis, as well as trafficking and importing of the illegal drug on June 14.
The charges against Griffith are indictable and can only be tried in the High Court.
As part of his bail conditions, he must now report to the District ‘C’ Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon with valid identification and must not apply for a passport or leave the country without the permission of the court.
His co-accused 50-year-old David Edward Forde, of Risk Road, Fitts Village, St James, was the first to secure $900, 000 bail earlier this month with conditions.
In the meantime, four others – 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 and 46-year-old Dale Eugene Gill, of No. 26 Oleander Drive, Enterprise, Christ Church – remain on remand at the St Philip penal institution charged with the same crime.
They are scheduled to reappear in the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on July 27.
