Customs Officer appears in court with another on a drug trafficking charge

Customs officer Lucille Brenda Scotland of Loubiere and Josiah Michael Quamie appeared before Chief Magistrate Candia Carette-George on a charge of drug trafficking on Tuesday, February 20, 2024.

The charge is that on February 16, 2024, Scotland and Quamie were involved in the trafficking of 930 grams of cannabis at the Douglas Charles airport.

Quamie who is from the village of Eggleston, pleaded guilty to the charge while Scotland pleaded not guilty.

The prosecution headed by acting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Davidson Cadette told the court they would be having a “trial” and did not object to bail in the matter.

Scotland was granted bail in the sum of six thousand dollars with Henry Williams as surety while Quamie who did not have someone to stand as surety for him was given a cash bail sum of $2,000.00 in his own recognizant for one week and is to return to court on February 27, 2024, where his bail conditions will be reviewed.

The matter is set for trial on April 10, 2024 in Marigot. Both individuals are represented by lawyer Wayne Norde.
