Facing charges involving importing heroin, Shakeda Davis  and Winston Burgess  appeared for mention in Magistrates Court on Friday [Sept 21].
At their previous appearance Mr Burgess had been granted $40,000 bail with a surety, and at the Court hearing, Mr Burgess’s bail was extended under the same conditions as before. Ms Davis had been remanded into custody.
After representations by her defence lawyer Elizabeth Christopher, Senior Magistrate Archie Warner directed that Ms Davis was to be released from custody provided that she signed for $40,000 bail and provide one surety in a like amount.
The Magistrate also ordered that, if released on bail, Ms Davis must wear an electronic monitoring device that confined her to her Devonshire residence for 24 hours every day, except between 12:00pm and 2:00pm every day during which time she must report to Hamilton Police Station.
The indictable charges they face allege that between a date unknown and 24th April 2012, they conspired with others to import diamorphine [heroin]. The amount of heroin involved was said to be just over 154 grams.
