Bail has been granted in the sum of $90,000 each, to two men who had been remanded in connection to a Tarish Pit shooting in December.
Alton Eusebe of La Plaine and Jess Alexander of Gutter Village, appeared before a Roseau Magistrate’s court on Thursday.
Their bail came after previous unsuccessful attempts by their lawyers, which had received strong objections from the prosecution on the grounds that police needed time to complete investigations as a number of firearms were still being sought. However, no objection was put forth to the court on Thursday.
Eusebe and Alexander are to report to the Roseau Police Station three times a week.
Meanwhile, Shermanie Peter, who had been remanded on December 29 in connection to the matter, received bail in the sum of $90,000 on January 9.
Kessler Alcendor of Goodwill and Alexander were slapped with several joint and individual charges on December 29. Alcendor was not granted bail.
Eusebe, Peter, Marvin Roberts of Mahaut and Mandella Gordon of Goodwill faced a number of firearm and drug-related offenses when they appeared before Chief Magistrate Evelina Baptiste on December 23,2011.
There had been reports that men went on a shooting spree in that community on the December 16 and 17, 2011. Reports also stated that they were, “walking up and down, spotting firearms.”
Their charges included : possession of a 12-gauge shot gun without the appropriate license, possession of 11 live rounds of 12-guage shot gun ammunition, the possession of a prohibited sawed off 12-gauge shot gun, possession of cannabis, and possession of 11 rounds of live 12-gauge shot gun ammunition on the La Plaine Public Road without a license.
One individual, Troy Parker, was allegedly wounded by Alcendor during the incident, according to reports.
