The six Jamaican men allegedly held in the eastern Caribbean in a multimillion-dollar drug bust were denied bail when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
The accused are Robert Lindsay, Stephen Watt, Owen Dunkley, Anthony Augustus Williams, Bernard Knight, and Byron Forrest.
They are jointly charged with possession of, dealing in, exporting, conspiracy to export and trafficking ganja.
The men were ordered to return to court on October 31 when the case will again be mentioned.
The police reported that in August a Jamaican-registered vessel laden with 2,800 pounds of ganja was intercepted in the eastern Caribbean by officials from the United States Coast Guard and the British Navy.
They say the vessel was searched and the drugs found.
The police say the drugs have an estimated street value of $14 million.
The men on board were arrested and later handed over to Jamaican law enforcement.
