Woman on $700,000 drugs charges
A St George’s woman has been accused of smuggling more than $700,000 of cannabis into Bermuda.
Renee Furbert, 27, was charged with importing cannabis resin, cannabis and tetrahydrocannabinol — the active ingredient in cannabis — into the island on January 11 last year.
She was additionally charged with having the same drugs in St George’s with intent to supply.
Ms Furbert did not enter a plea at Magistrates’ Court today because prosecutors have sent the matter to the Supreme Court.
Prosecutors told the court the charges involve about $618,000 of cannabis, $48,000 of cannabis resin and $50,000 of tetrahydrocannabinol.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released Ms Furbert on $75,000 bail with two sureties. She was also ordered to surrender her travel documents.
The matter will appear in the Supreme Court on April 1.
