Edridge Clyne Arrested After Grand Jury Finds That He’s A Drug Dealer
CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment against a 45-year-old St. Thomas man Friday after agents testified he was selling marijuana.
Edridge Clyne was arrested Friday after a federal grand jury indictment on Thursday charged him with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.
After his arrest, Clyne made his initial appearance before U.S. District Court Judge Curtis Gomez, who ordered that he be released on a $25,000 unsecured bond with GPS monitoring.
Clyne’s arraignment is scheduled for December 9.
If convicted of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, Clyne faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, Sharpe said.
The indictment is the result of investigative work by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the FBI.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sigrid Tejo-Sprotte.
