Jailhouse Groom Gets Bail

The 35-year-old drug suspect who was allowed to marry his fiancé while in custody at the Central Police Station was on Thursday granted bail.

After the prosecution did not object to bail, Senior Supreme Court Justice Jon Isaacs granted Kendrick Tinker, 35, $15,000 bail with two suretors.

The jailhouse wedding story gripped headlines earlier this week when it was revealed that Tinker, who was arrested for allegedly trying to push $50,000 worth of marijuana through the country married his fiancé from his jail cell.

Since then four police officers – an assistant superintendent of police, a police corporal and two constables have been placed on administrative leave pending the results of an internal investigation.

Outside of court Thursday, Tinker’s lawyer Devard Francis said he was happy with the outcome.

“He did get bail and you know, he has no antecedents, no priors,” he said. “There are some requirements he has to abide by.”

Tinker, who told our news team that his wife is in Freeport, has to check in at the Central Police Station in Grand Bahama each Monday and Friday before 6:00 p.m.

His co-accused on the drug matter Devon Rolle and Elvardo Farrington, were also granted $15,000 bail with two suretors and are required to check into the Nassau Street and Wulff Road police stations, respectfully.
