Man denies importing heroin
A man denied smuggling $647,000 worth of heroin into Bermuda at a Supreme Court hearing yesterday.
Omar Davy, 37, pleaded not guilty to the importation of the drug on July 28 and possession with intent to supply.
Davy, a Jamaican national, also denied wilfully obstructing customs officers by running away from the customs area at the LF Wade International Airport before officers could finish searching him and his luggage. It is alleged the haul was 220.88g of the controlled drug.
Puisne Judge Charles-Etta Simmons remanded Mr Davy in custody until January, when he is expected to return to the court for trial. Mr Davy was one of several defendants who appeared at yesterday’s arraignments session.
Katrina Burgess and Cleveland Rogers are both accused of the premeditated murder of Marcus Gibbings, who was found stabbed to death at a Devonshire apartment on October 26, 2006. Ms Burgess, 47, and Mr Rogers, 51, who were not required to enter a plea, are expected to return to the court next month.
