(ANTIGUA OBSERVER) – Four people charged in connection with the counter-narcotics operation that netted just over $150,000 worth of cocaine and cannabis are scheduled to go on trial in October.
Glenroy Pierre, Wonderly Lavia, Nicholas Thomas and Bertail Roberts, all of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, appeared in the All Saints Magistrate Court on Monday before magistrate Ngaio Emanuel where trial dates were set for October 1 and 3.
Pierre and Lavia, who had been living in Falmouth, were charged with possession and being concerned in the supply of 2.14 pounds of cannabis which carries a wholesale value of $5,760, remain on bail for $12,000.
The duo, who paid the $6,000 needed to facilitate their release in addition to having two Antiguan sureties sign on their behalf, will go on trial on October 1. They will continue to report to the Dockyard Police Station every day between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., until the matter is dispensed by the court.
The two who are being represented by attorney Michael Archibald have already surrendered their travel documents to the court.
