Investigations continue following bail hearings for accused in major drug bust

According to ACP Queeley, Kenrick Simmonds secured bail at EC$500,000 with two sureties. However the presiding Magistrate denied bail requests for Tenielle ‘Blaze’ Percival and Greg Williamson. The ACP said, however, that Police had requested the denial of bail for all three men, and indicated that investigations are continuing for the case.

The three appeared in District A Magistrate’s Court on Monday (Oct. 5) before Magistrate Josephene Mallalieu-Webbe.

Kenrick Simmonds was arrested and charged “for the offences of Obstruction under the Electronics Crime Act and Incite to Import under the Drug Act”.

Tenielle ‘Blaze’ Percival was arrested and charged “for the offences Possession of a Controlled Drug, Possession with Intent to Supply and Importation of a Controlled Drug”.

Greg Williamson of Antigua was arrested and charged “for the offences of Possession of a Controlled Drug, Possession with Intent to Supply and Importation of a Controlled Drug”.

The three were in police custody last week Thursday following the Conaree Beach drug bust that netted a shipment of 124 pounds of compressed marijuana, which police said had a street value of $930,000.

Last week, Acting Commissioner of Police Stafford Liburd, in a press conference, told the media that two men approached the Conaree beach in a speed boat about 5 a.m., 1st October, watched by police as a result of intelligence gathered. He said when police identified themselves, one man in the boat opened fire on the officers, who returned fire killing the gunman, later said to be a Dominican residing in Antigua.
