No sureties for clerk charged with drug trafficking
A Customs dispatch clerk, charged in connection with a $1.88 million cannabis haul at the Bridgetown Port, will spend two days on remand as he hunts for suitable sureties for bail imposed by the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Nicholas Mark Fevrier, 35, of Wellington Street, The City, was not required to plead to trafficking in cannabis on October 30, and doing acts preparatory for the purpose of trafficking in cannabis, between October 14 and 30 this year.
The prosecution did not object to him being released on bail and Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant granted the accused $800 000 bail with two sureties.
However, Fevrier, who was represented by attorney Angella Mitchell-Gittens, was unable to find suitable sureties by the end of the day.
He was remanded to HMP Dodds until Friday when he will reappear in the same court. (HLE)
