Man on cocaine charges gets bail
Urcel Bundy, the Hawkeye security guard charged with possession of more that 200 pounds of cocaine, has been granted bail.
When the matter came up for mention in the St Catherine Parish Court before judge Tara Reid-Carr, Bundy's attorney, Jacqueline Asher, made a successful bail application.
The allegations are that about 5:30 a.m. on September 7, Bundy, who was been pursued by undercover narcotics police along Portmore Drive in St Catherine, ran leaving the drugs.
He allegedly stopped his vehicle and fled the scene. Checks made by the police revealed that there were boxes containing a white powdery substance resembling cocaine weighing 203 pounds inside the vehicle.
Bundy, 45, is said to have turned up later at the Portmore Police Station and reported that his Nissan motor car was stolen by gunmen. He was subsequently taken into custody and was pointed out on identification parade on September 16. He was later charged with breaches of the Dangerous Drug Act.
