The two were arrested on charges relating to the possession of drugs and their bail application was due to be heard in court yesterday.

A KIMBERLEY couple, Percy Higgo and Jean Underwood, will remain in custody after they abandoned their bail application in the Kimberley Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

The two were arrested recently on charges relating to the possession of drugs and their bail application was due to be heard in court yesterday.

However, their Legal Aid lawyer pointed out that both the accused had abandoned their bail application.

He indicated further that according to Higgo’s mother, they had both also been booked to undergo drug rehabilitation. He added, however, that he was not sure whether this was private rehabilitation.

The two, both wearing hoodies, held hands in the dock and rested their heads on each other’s shoulders.

The case was postponed to later this month for further investigation.
