Man accused of drugs importation
A British man accused of importing almost half-a-million dollars worth of ecstasy and cannabis was remanded in custody yesterday.
Edward Odell, 53, was charged in Magistrates’ Court with the importation of cannabis resin and MDMA, commonly called ecstasy.
He was also charged with possession of resin with intent to supply and possession of MDMA with intent to supply.
The incident was alleged to have happened last Thursday in St George’s.
Mr Odell, from Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, did not enter a plea because the case must be heard in front of the Supreme Court.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe ordered Mr Odell to appear in the Supreme Court arraignments session on April 1 and remanded him in custody.
