The case against the two former Guardsman Limited security guards, who were allegedly held with 66 kilograms of cocaine, is to be mentioned on January 11, 2016.

The date was set when Owen Glaze and Andrew Brown reappeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Glaze and Brown are charged with possession of, dealing in, taking steps to export, and trafficking cocaine.

The matter was up for trial yesterday but could not proceed because a new attorney has joined the case.

Attorney-at-law Martyn Thomas, who is representing Glaze, told presiding magistrate Sandria Wong-Small that he recently took over the case which was being handled by attorney, George Thomas who has died.

The attorney said he would need time to take instructions from his client.

RM Wong-Small then set the case for mention on January 11.

Glaze and Brown also received extensions to their bail.

It is alleged that cocaine valued at approximately $264 million was found inside a car in which the men were travelling.
