$3M Drug Suspects Jailed

The two people arrested in connection with Sunday’s multi-million dollar drug haul in Grand Bahama have been jailed.

Michael Calixe, 49, of #1 Bayshore and Midshipmen Road and Marvin Bridgewater, 36, of #33 Fiddlers Green were yesterday arraigned before Magistrate Andrew Forbes on possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply and conspiracy to possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

The men were arrested on Sunday after officers from the Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) searched a home on Bayshore and Midshipmen Road and an Isuzu truck and found 102 kilos of cocaine.

Further investigations led police to another home on Fiddlers Green where they discovered four large coolers with 56 taped packages of suspected marijuana.

The drugs have an estimated street value of over $3 million, according to authorities.

Both suspects pleaded not guilty to the charges and were remanded to Her Majesty’s Prisons (HMP) until August 9 for trial.

In other court news:

A 19-year-old Grand Bahama woman escaped jail time after admitting to the crime.

Coral Reef resident Theresa Adderley pleaded guilty to the charge of robbery.

The incident is said to have taken place last Thursday when a male was robbed of his cellphone while in the Lucaya area.

Adderley’s honesty in the matter paid off.

She was given a conditional discharge.

Adderley must pay $500 to the complainant and fulfill 200 hours of community service.

Failure to do so could lead to the Grand Bahama resident being convicted and sentenced to three months behind bars at HMP.

Meanwhile 35-year-old Joshua Williams was not so lucky.

The Matthew Street, Nassau Village and Hunter’s, Grand Bahama resident was charged with one count each of possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

Williams pleaded not guilty and was remanded to prison until July 28.
