Three Vincentian men accused of several drug offences will remain at Dodds Prison for another 28 days.
Michael Montgomery Jackson, a 41-year-old boat captain from St Vincent; Brendon Elliston Ollivierre, a 40-year-old chief engineer from Bequia; and Jake-Jess McPherson King, a 26-year-old deck hand, also from Bequia, will reappear before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court on January 27.
The trio is charged with importation, possession, possession with intent to supply and trafficking of cannabis on April 27, last year. The cannabis weighed 176.7 kilogrammes and had an estimated street value of BDS$707,600.
The Vincentians were not required to plead to the indictable charges. They have been on remand since their first appearance before Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes back in May last year.
Attorneys-at-law Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim and Latisha Springer are representing Ollivierre, defence attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens represents Jackson, and King has Martie Garnes as his lawyer.
