Four alleged drug traffickers appeared in court yesterday in connection with the seizure of 118 pounds of marijuana.
Sherlin Woodside, 49, of Stafford Creek, Andros; Raymond Bain, 40, of Sandypoint, Abaco; Dominique Smith, 32, of Firetrail Road, and Taneko Ferguson, 24, of Minnie Street, denied charges of conspiracy to possess drugs with intent to supply and drug possession with intent to supply at their arraignment before Magistrate Andrew Forbes.
Officers from DEU allegedly busted the men at Clifton Pier shortly after they arrived by boat on October 6.
Forbes told the men he did not have the authority to grant them bail for the offenses. He said they would remain in prison until their lawyer Ian cargill could seek bail in the Supreme Court.
Smith was charged separately with another count of drug possession with intent to supply that involved three pounds of marijuana. He also denied that allegation.
Forbes set trial dates of April 24 and 25 for both cases.
