Serial drug offender denied bail
A Gunsite Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael resident who appeared in court on four drug charges involving 134 lbs of marijuana, has been remanded to prison.
David Alexander Maynard, a 45-year-old general worker, was not required to plead to the indictable offences when he stood before Acting Chief Magistrate Douglas Frederick yesterday.
He is charged with possession, cultivation, intent to supply and having a traffickable quantity of the substance on August 31.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson objected to bail, stating that Maynard’s 12 antecedents were all drug related and that they “suggest a propensity” for such offences.
Watson also said the accused was already on bail from another court, for allegations made against him in 2012 and 2013.
The case will come up again on September 30.
Maynard was represented by attorney-at-law Dr E Waldo Waldron-Ramsay, QC.
