American trio accused of importing drugs
Three Americans were charged yesterday with the importation of more than $250,000 worth of drugs.
It was alleged in Magistrates’ Court that Julian Mendez, 22, Jahad Waldron, 27, both from Brooklyn, New York, and 31-year-old Margil Mireles, from Houston, Texas, conspired to import controlled drugs to Bermuda.
The drugs were seized on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship on September 5.
The court heard the alleged haul included cannabinoid oils and a substance called “shatter”.
The men made no plea because the case must be heard in Supreme Court.
They were remanded in custody until October 1.
