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.
