A trio of individuals, including a Bermudian male and two Canadian females were today charged in Magistrates court with conspiracy to import cannabis with an estimated value of close to $270,000 into Bermuda.

Thirty-seven-year-old Kanhai Armstrong of Pembroke, and Canada residents Victoria Debartolo, 25, and Leila Todd, 44, each pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Additionally, the two women were also accused of possessing cannabis with intent to supply, a charge they also denied, while Mr Armstrong further denied having a digital scale and a grinder intended for drug use.

The alleged offences were alleged to have occurred between an unknown date and October 7 of this year.

The case was adjourned by Magistrate Craig Attridge until January 13, with the defendants granted bail in the amount of $20,000 and ordered to surrender their travel documents and attend the Hamilton Police Station three times a week.
