The St. James Parish Court is to review the bail offer for 44-year-old Vanessa Richardson, the British woman who was held at the Sangster International Airport with nearly six pounds of cocaine.
Richardson, who was charged alongside 39-year-old Damion Nembhard of East Ingleside Gardens in Mandeville, appeared before presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small on Wednesday, July 31.
Richardson was initially granted bail in the sum of $1 million and that amount was reduced to $750,000. But when she appeared in court on Wednesday, her lawyer Khadine Colman asked Wong-Small to review the bail sum due to certain health concerns.
On that premise, Wong-Small requested certain medical documents from overseas and set the matter for further mention on August 14.
Nembhard, who is represented by attorneys-at-law Martyn Thomas and Michael Hemmings, will remain behind bars until that date.
Reports are that on May 15, 2019, about 11 a.m., a team of officers were on anti-narcotics duties for an outgoing TUI flight destined to Birmingham, England when they observed a male with a suitcase and a female in his company.
The police requested a search of the piece of luggage in the male’s possession and he indicated to the officer that said he was not travelling and was only assisting the female. During the search, seven sachets marked “Island Jerk Seasoning” were found to contain a white powdery substance that tested positive for cocaine. The drug weighed five pounds and 14.80 ounces.
