Police officer allegedly found with ammo slapped with $70K bail

Police officer allegedly found with ammo slapped with $70K bail

Magistrate Khadeen Palmer has agreed to grant Mr Lenroy Samuel, a police sergeant facing charges of Breach of Trust, and Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, bail in the amount of $70,000 with a $10,000 cash component.

During his arraignment hearing held today, November 8, 2021, the Crown argued fiercely for his bail to be denied, stating that the charges against him were serious and he could spent many years behind bars if convicted.

On the other hand, defence attorney Mr Stephen R. Daniels countered that Samuel was a suitable candidate for bail with conditions attached.

Bail conditions


He was then offered bail with several conditions, including that he surrenders all travel documents to the police, report to the Virgin Gorda Police Station three times a week, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, between 6:00 am and 12:00 pm, refrain from interfering with the investigation and have no contact with Mr Cordel O’Neal and his family whether directly or indirectly.

Mr Samuel is from Dominica, is 41 years old with four children, including an 11-month-old baby, with his wife.

He resides on Virgin Gorda and has been a member of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force for the last 15 years, and has no prior convictions.
