Woman planned to import fentanyl

A Canadian woman has admitted conspiring to import synthetic opioid fentanyl to the island.

During an appearance in the Supreme Court yesterday Jacqueline Robinson, 25, from Courtice, Ontario, pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiring with others to import the controlled drug between an unknown date and December 15 last year.

However, she denied allegations that she conspired to supply the drug or possessed the drug with intent to supply it. Deputy director of prosecutions said the plea was acceptable for the Crown, requesting that the other charges remain on file.

Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves ordered that pre-sentencing reports be conducted on Robinson, remanding her into custody until the March arraignments session.

Also appearing in court was 35-year-old Craig Lawrence, from Markham, Ontario, who was originally charged alongside Robinson.

Mr Lawrence denied all three charges. He was also remanded into custody until March, when his case will be mentioned in the Supreme Court.
