Vincentian Glenroy Pierre, 33, of Queen’s Drive, and Dominican Jones Telemaque, 38, were both placed on remand custody on Wednesday, July 11, after pleading not guilty to the possession and exportation of 31 kilos of cocaine.

Police report that during a police operation on July 11, in the Morne Ronde area, the two men, along with another Dominican, Clement Pierre, were the occupants of a motor vessel called “Oshantie”. It was reported that an exchange of fire occurred between both parties leaving Dominican, Clement Pierre, dead.

Prosecutor Adolphus Delpesche had objected to the men’s bail on the grounds that Clement Pierre was on bail for another drug offence and they were fearful that if he was given bail, he would not turn up to court.

In relation to Telemaque, Delpesche said he had no ties to St Vincent and he had appeared before the court the day before on an immigration charge, and was fined $500 forthwith.

“Based on that, we are fearful he wouldn’t surrender himself when trial starts,” Delpesche added.

The men are on remand until August 10.
