A Paget man was this morning charged with a plot to import heroin, along with possessing about 50g of cocaine freebase.

Damon Morris, 26, was formally charged with conspiring with others to import 86.38g of diamorphine, commonly known as heroin, between an unknown date and December 13 last year.

He was also charged with three counts of possessing cocaine freebase with intent to supply on January 22 and one count of possessing drug equipment — specifically a scale — on the same date.

According to prosecutors, that quantity of heroin could be sold for as much as $253,380 on the streets of Bermuda, while the cocaine could fetch up to $18,800.

Mr Morris was not required to enter a plea as the matters are indictable and must be heard by the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Morris on $50,000 on the condition that he find two like sureties, surrender his travel documents, wear an electronic monitoring device and attend Hamilton Police Station three times a week.
