A Supreme Court judge on Thursday ordered drug suspect David Colebrooke tagged with an ankle bracelet as a condition of his $35,000 bail.
David Colebrooke, of Jasmine Gardens, was among nine suspects arrested on March 2, 2011 after authorities confiscated 852 pounds of marijuana near Cay Verde, Ragged Island.
Colebrooke was on $100,000 bail in connection with a $4 million marijuana bust that occurred off Exuma in October 2009 when prosecutors allege that he reoffended.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Carolita Bethell refused Colebrooke bail because of the pending charge.
Colebrooke, who has already spent five months in custody, succeeded in his bid for bail when he appeared before Senior Justice Jon Isaacs.
Police have filed a murder charge against two suspects in the shooting death of Alexander Hepburn.
Carlos Colebrooke, 23, of Williams Street, Nassau Village, and Geovanny Lefleur, 20, of Hope Gardens, appeared before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez yesterday accused of the August 5 murder of Hepburn, who was also known as "Boy Blue".
Hepburn, 30, was drinking a beer in front of a bar on Alexandria Boulevard, Nassau Village when a gunman shot him in the head.
Colebrooke and Lefleur did not have to enter pleas to the murder charge. Prosecutors plan to commit the case to the Supreme Court for trial on September 27.
Gomez said he would recommend that prison officials keep the men in the remand center after lawyer Geoffrey Farquharson raised concerns about their safety.
According to Farquharson, Hepburn has relatives in the maximum security unit of the prison who have made threats against the men.
When the new school year begins on Monday, traffic on New Providence is expected to increase dramatically as parents of school-aged children try to navigate through the ongoing New Providence Road Improvement Project.
To assist in easing the flow of traffic, the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) is expected to deploy as many as 130 officers to deal with possible congestion in the capital Monday morning.
In total, about five schools will be affected by ongoing road works: C.I. Gibson Senior High, St. Augustine's College (SAC), Doris Johnson Senior High, Faith Temple School and C.R. Walker High School.
Assistant Superintendent of Police Dennis Sturrup of the RBPF Traffic Division said police are most concerned about congestion at the intersection of Prince Charles Drive.
During a road works tour yesterday, environmental specialist in the Ministry of Public Works, Shenique Albury, said work on Prince Charles Drive is progressing steadily.
"The works in this area are well advanced," she said. "We have been able to pave since July, and we're working our way west along Prince Charles Drive. Every area has its own timeline, and what we're trying to get people to understand is that we're working in sections.
"The first section was between Pine Barren Road and the junction of Fox Hill Road. The second section is between Pine Barren and College Garden Road."
The ministry has designed routes intended to provide easy access to the schools.
Those traveling to C.I. Gibson are encouraged to use the Wulff Road round-about, and later Samana Drive, once its reopened in the near future.
Those traveling westbound to SAC should use Fox Hill Road via Springfield Road.
People traveling east should use Prince Charles Drive as usual, but note that only local access will be given.
Those going to Doris Johnson will be granted westbound access on Prince Charles Drive.
Those traveling east along Prince Charles Drive can take the detour through Beatrice Avenue to Fox Hill Road and then go back onto Prince Charles Drive.
Access to those trying to reach Faith Temple can reach the school heading west on Prince Charles Drive through Pine Barren Road.
For those headed to C.R. Walker, the recommended route is via Market Street at School Lane, or Blue Hill Road to Hay Street, then onto Market Street and School Lane.
In addition, works officials advise all pedestrians to heed warnings on work sites, and stay outside work zones as much as possible.

Two suspected armed robbers were injured during a shoot-out with police on Saturday, shortly after the men reportedly held up a Pinewood Gardens resident.
Up to yesterday the suspects, ages 22 and 18, were in hospital in stable condition under police guard, according to police.
According to preliminary reports, a man was walking through Cottonwood Street, Pinewood Gardens when he was approached by two gunmen and robbed of an undisclosed amount of money and jewelry.
The incident took place around 6:48 p.m. After the men reportedly robbed the Pinewood resident, they fled on foot in an unknown direction.
"Quick response by officers of the Southeastern Division resulted in the suspects confronting the police and opening fire on them while in the area of Sapodilla Boulevard, Pinewood Gardens," police said. "As a result, the police returned fire which resulted in both suspects being shot."
Police did not specify where the suspects were shot or the extent of their injuries. No officers were injured during the shoot-out.
The officers recovered a handgun along with a quantity of ammunition and cash from the suspects. The cash is believed to be the property of the victim.
Police said active investigations continue. However the men are expected to face criminal charges when they are released from the hospital.

TWO armed robbers who shot at police in a bid to evade capture are now under guard at hospital.
Officers wounded and arrested the two after they robbed a Pinewood Gardens resident.
The men - aged 18 and 22 - were last night in stable condition, according to police, who yesterday sent out a strong warning to would-be criminals.
Superintendent Theophilus Cunningham, in charge of the Southeastern division, said: "We would like to send a clear message to the would-be criminals and suspects that if you intend to commit a crime, and you are caught, you are going to have to spend the time."
