Man held for allegedly smuggling cocaine

A 39-year-old Barbadian man is to stand trial in the Supreme Court after being accused of smuggling approximately US$178,000 of cocaine into Bermuda.

Dave Trotman appeared in the Magistrates' Court on Friday to face charges of importing a controlled substance and possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply in an incident on December 18.

Trotman was not required to enter a plea as his case is indictable and will be dealt with in the Supreme Court.

No bail application was made for Trotman, who remained silent throughout the proceedings.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded Trotman until January 4, when he is scheduled to return to court .
