Jamaican and Vincy denied bail on drug charges


Jamaican national Desmond Anthony Lammie and Vincentian Sydney Norville-charged with possessing $340,000 worth of cannabis-will continue to spend time behind bars having been denied bail.


The two along with Ryan Johnson were allegedly busted with 34 pounds of weed  on November 30.


The cannabis was reportedly found in a barrel in Lammie’s home during a police search.


They were all charged with  possession of cannabis, possession with intent to transfer, drug trafficking and possession with intent to sell.


Just a about a week ago, Johnson was granted bail by Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards in the All Saints Magistrate’s court to the tune of  $350,000 with a $20,000 cash component


The other two accused appeared before the same Magistrate last week and their lawyer Wendel Robinson made an application for them to be granted bail.


But police prosecutor Sergeant Rohan Gittens objected on several grounds.


After hearing both sides, Magistrate Emanuel-Edwards denied bail because of the nature of the offenses and the penalties they carry, lack of family ties, the fact that they may be a flight risk.


Norville, despite being an OECS national, does not have any family living in Antigua. He also has a matter pending in the High Court and was not forthright with the police about his local address.


Lammie also does not have any status in the country.

  1. But LAMMIE nah easy tarl tarl. So he go a ppl country and misbehave with no LEGAL right to stay?? That’s a double whammy boss.

    And why the Vincy don’t try that with Ralph Gonsalves?

    • Wrong. Only in Virgin islands everything goes. It’s who you know in the Virgin islands. You getting ripped off by everyone and you don’t have anyone to complain to. Consumer is a waste of time. Everyone friend or related. Lord, I hate this world now. No justice.

  2. Too many Jamaicans where ever they go are always on the wrong side of the law. I am close to 60 years of age and I can say that Jamaicans have a propensity to misbehave. I am not certain as to why they are more likely to be criminals especially of the violent type.

    When I go into town once a week I see new characters now and again. I am unsure how these characters are able to pass through immigration. Any person with eyes to see could see these people are trouble. We have enough trouble in Antigua already why should more trouble be imported?
