Man denies $265,000 cannabis importation

A Warwick man has denied attempting to import $265,289 worth of cannabis into Bermuda.

Damion Smith, 44, was stopped at LF Wade International Airport on August 28 after sniffer dogs identified two suitcases, which were then X-rayed.

The suitcases were found to contain 5,032.99 grams of cannabis in 12 square packages.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Smith on $100,000 bail, and told the defendant to return to court on September 23 for disclosure and to set a trial date.

He also ordered Mr Smith to surrender all travel documents, and to report to Hamilton Police Station daily until his next court appearance.
