They reappeared before Magistrate Debby-Ann Bassaw, following their release on March 16 after posting cash bail of close to US $3400. They had their passports returned to them, following an application from their lawyer Rajiv Persad.

Morton and Willett were arrested after the first day of T&T's Regional Four-Day Competition match against Leeward Islands in Port-of-Spain for carrying 407 grams of marijuana with an estimated street value of close to US $680. They were picked-up by police following a routine traffic stop and played no further part in the match.
