Bail hearing for New Orleans pair adjourned

A bail hearing for a New Orleans duo is to take place in Magistrates’ Court next week.

Thaddeus Ramsey and Merrill Boyd have been on the island since Mr Ramsey was allegedly found with $10,445 and Mr Boyd with an alleged $18,537 in undeclared cash at LF Wade International Airport last April.

The pair were released on $20,000 bail each after they were charged with conspiring with others to remove criminal property from the island.

However, senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson remanded them in custody on Monday after Cindy Clarke, the Director of Public Prosecutions, said that they were “attempting to interfere with the course of justice by providing a false narrative to the people of Bermuda”.

A bail hearing for the pair was scheduled for today, but magistrate Craig Attridge said that the case should be heard in front of Ms Anderson.

Mr Attridge adjourned the hearing to April 10 and remanded Mr Ramsey and Mr Boyd in custody until that time.
