Two charged with possessing 526 pounds of marijuana
Two men were arraigned yesterday in a magistrate’s court on drug possession charges in connection with the seizure of 526 pounds of marijuana in New Providence last month.
Raleigh Seymour, 39, of Alexandria Road and Edmar Donavon Johnson, 34, of Leeward Isles Way, Sunshine Park, pleaded not guilty to the charge of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply. They were arraigned before Deputy Chief Magistrate Carolita Bethell.
Police seized the marijuana on November 10 at a Cowpen Road residence.
The pair was denied bail and remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison. Police said the drugs have a street value of$526,000.
A third man was arraigned two weeks ago in connection with the same drug seizure.
Gregory Seymour, 33, who has another pending drug case, also pleaded not guilty to the charge of marijuana possession with intent to supply.
Seymour was denied bail and remanded to prison. He is currently on trial in the same court for the seizure of 576 pounds of marijuana at a Winder’s Terrace home in 2008.
