Emotions ran high at the temporary District “A” Magistrates’ Court  at Glendairy Prisons yesterday.

Tears were shed inside and outside the small courtroom of the former correctional facility after four employees of the Bridgetown Port were remanded to Her Majesty’s Prisons At Dodds until next month, having faced drugs, ammunition and firearms charges.

Selwyn Junior Thorne, Chelston Anthony Mayhew, Jeffrey Orlando Jackman and Michael Ophneil Williams were all remanded by Magistrate Graveney Bannister following unsuccessful bail applications  by their lawyers.

They return to court on February 11. All the matters read were indictable,  so none of the accused was allowed  to plead.

A distraught Mayhew, 41, of Ashdeane Village, Black Rock,  St Michael, sat in the back of the court and started to cry after the failed bail application by attorney at law  Dr Waldo Waldron-Ramsay.

Well well well. Drugs and guns to further destroy the youth and peace of this nation now they up in the court bawling.

It's a pity that they couldn't come together to develop an honest business idea instead. Up Dodds now trying to sleep wid one eye open smh.

Good job RBPF, it seems some proper investigative work now going on.

Crime does not pay in the end. Let this be a warning to others. I feel sorry for them though.
