Two plead not guilty to drugs importation conspiracy charges
Two men yesterday denied a plot to bring more than $61,000 worth of drugs to the island.
Wayne DeShields and Daquan Williams, both 25, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court to conspiracy to import THC between an unknown date and February 4 last year.
They also pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to import THC, the main active ingredient of cannabis, with intent to supply between an unknown date and March 3 last year.
Mr DeShields also denied a charge of possession of a knife in Pembroke on February 24 last year.
He further denied a charge of possession of a grinder and a scale for drug use in St George’s on the same date.
The court heard that 206gm of THC, with an estimated street value of $61,800, was alleged to have been found.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo adjourned the case until February 28 and released the men, from St George’s, on $5,000 bail each.
He also ordered them to surrender their passports and visit Hamilton Police Station twice a week.
