Tour operator remanded for heroin offence
A 56-year-old tour operator is behind bars today after admitting possessing heroin worth more than $250,000 with intent to supply.
Michal Tucker, of Paget, pleaded guilty to having 86.38 grams of the drug in St George’s on December 13 last year.
Deputy director of public prosecutions Cindy Clarke told the court that the drugs would have had a street value of $253,380 if sold in Bermuda.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo remanded Tucker, who runs Affordable Ride Minibus Tours, into custody and ordered a social inquiry report as well as a drug assessment.
Sentencing was adjourned to March 10.
