Tribune Court Reporter


TWO men were granted $30,000 bail in court yesterday after allegedly being found with $100,000 worth of cocaine uncovered on a mailboat in Inagua last week.

Clayvone Seymour, 57, and James Dean, 65, both of Matthew Town, Inagua, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson Pratt. There they faced charges of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply and conspiracy to possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

It is alleged that on January 21 in Inagua the accused were found by police with 11.25 lbs of cocaine. A search of their mailboat uncovered the drugs, which have an estimated street value of $100,000, in a freezer box concealed under seafood items.

In court, both accused pleaded not guilty to the charges. Prosecutor ASP Davis had no objection to bail, but asked that conditions be attached.

Bail of $30,000 with one or two sureties was granted to each accused on condition they sign in at Matthew Town Police Station every Monday and Wednesday by 7pm.

The accused are expected to return to court in Nassau for their trial dates on September 12, 13 and 14.
