The two former Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) soldiers charged last year with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition, shooting with intent, possession and dealing of ganja, and taking steps preparatory to export ganja had their $800,000 bail extended when they appeared in the St Elizabeth Parish Court this morning.
38-year-old Robert Smith and 39-year-old Roan Mendez, are to reappear in court on March 8.
Both men were referred to as former JDF corporals when they appeared before Senior Parish Court Judge Natiesha Fairclough- Hylton.
It was disclosed that the case file is incomplete.
The men were arrested following a joint police/ military operation that busted $6 million worth of ganja on October 13, 2020 in Gutters, St Elizabeth.
