Bail for three on separate charges

Three people who appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today, charged with separate offences, were granted bail.

Derek Omar Jefferson Springer, of Brathwaite Gap, Dayrells Road, St Michael, is accused of having a quantity of cannabis in his possession yesterday. It is also alleged that the 28-year-old fruit vendor had a trafficable quantity of the illicit drug and had it with intent to supply.

He denied all three charges which were read to him by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.

There were no objections to bail from the police prosecutor, and Springer was granted his freedom on a $2,000 surety.

He turns to court on July 18.

Meantime, it is alleged that 20-year-old Muriah Bobb-Blackman assaulted and obstructed Police Constable Rohan Clarke in the execution of his duties, on two occasions, on May 23.

However, the self-employed Spruce Street, St Michael resident entered a not guilty plea.

There was no objection to bail from the prosecutor and Bobb-Blackman was released on $1,000 and told to return to court on June 23.

However, the accused has to abide by a daily 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew until the case is completed.

Jamar Haynes, who is accused of several offences, including assault of a police officer, will make his second appearance before the Bridgetown magistrate on July 15.

It is alleged that the 29-year-old labourer from Suttle Street, St Michael damaged a door belonging to Nakita Jones on May 23 without lawful excuse.

He is also accused of assaulting Police Constable Ronnie Archer on the same day, as well as resisting the officer and his colleague Police Constable Ryan Willoughby in the execution of their duties.

Haynes secured bail in the sum of $5,000, which he posted with one surety after there were no objections to his release from the prosecutor.

However, he has been warned to seek the assistance of the police when recovering his property from Jones’ residence, since he is not allowed to return there on his own for any reason and must also stay away from the complainant.
