Canadian women deny drug importation
Two Canadian women this morning denied a plot to import more that 10kg of cannabis to the island.
Amanda Huggins, 29, from Brampton, Ontario, and Mekeela Lye, 28, from Mississauga, Ontario, both pleaded not guilty to conspiring with others to import the controlled drug, worth an estimated $544,825.
The pair also denied possessing the drugs with intent to supply in St George’s on December 1.
In total, prosecutors allege that the offences involve 10,896.8g of cannabis.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released both defendants on $15,000 bail with a like surety, and were ordered to surrender travel documents and appear at the Southside Police Station three times a week.
The matter is set to return to Magistrates’ Court in March for trial.
