Smith’s man denies drug importation

A Smith’s man this morning denied a charge of importing more than 3.5kg of cannabis to Bermuda.

Brandon Frank, 29, pleaded not guilty to charges of importing the controlled drug and possessing it with intent to supply in an incident on March 16.

Prosecutor Alan Richards told the court that the charges were related to around 3.5kg of cannabis and 100g of cannabis resin, and the drugs could fetch more than $150,000 if sold on the streets of Bermuda.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Frank on $60,000 bail with a like surety, ordering that he surrender all travel documents and report to the Hamilton Police Station three times a week.

The matter is set to return to court for trial on December 2.
