Accused men without sureties end up in jail
Two men charged with separate offences were remanded to HMP Dodds today after they were unable to present sureties to post bail on their behalf.
Corey Andre Agard, of Tudor Bridge Main Road, St Michael, went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick accused of possession, possession with intent to supply and possession of a trafficable quantity on cannabis on March 13.
The 36-year-old labourer pleaded not guilty to the charges.
He also denied assaulting Police Sergeant Ewin Norville in the execution of his duties on the same day.
Bail was offered to the accused man. However, he had no surety present and was therefore remanded into custody until March 24.

The 35-year-old conductor of Campaign Land, Martindale’s Road, St Michael denied assaulting Rosette Odle, occasioning her actual bodily harm, on March 13.

In another case, Shaquille Rommel Dexter Best was granted $2,500 bail on an assault charge.
The 23-year-old of #10 Church Street Gardens, Speightstown, St Peter is accused on unlawfully and maliciously wounding Michael Sargeant on March 12.
He pleaded not guilty to the offence and was released after the prosecutor had no objections to bail.
