ST JAMES, Jamaica — Banker, Sheena Mitchell-Headley and her husband co-accused Chad, each had their $5 million bail extended in the St James Parish Court on Tuesday.

The Goodwill, St James couple, charged with breaches of the Dangerous Drugs Act, are to return to court on September 30, 2022.

Sheena Headley was charged by the Narcotics police on June 20, 2022, after she was found in possession of US$550,000 worth of cocaine. Her husband Chad, who was also a suspect in that investigation, subsequently went on the run and was being pursued by the police.

Following a media publication of his identity as a Person of Interest, he eventually turned himself over to the police accompanied by his attorney on June 23.

He was jointly charged along with his wife with possession, dealing, trafficking, and conspiracy to export cocaine.

It is alleged that about 6:00 pm on June 15, a white 2002 Toyota Prado SUV was intercepted at premises in Goodwill, after making several attempts to elude the police.

The police say during a subsequent search of the vehicle, 10 rectangular-shaped packages containing cocaine weighing approximately 25 pounds, were found. Mrs Headley was driving the vehicle.
