Fisherman denies $90,000 drug possession

A Pembroke fisherman this morning denied charges of possessing cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply.

Richard Pereech, 36, was allegedly found with 27.87g of cocaine in his car and 1,685.7g of cannabis in his home on Friday.

Prosecutor Takiyah Burgess told Magistrates' Court the cannabis could be sold on the streets of Bermuda for as much as $84,000, depending on how it was sold, while the cocaine could fetch as much as $6,625.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner gave Mr Pereech a trial date in February and released him on $25,000 bail with a like surety.
