Dwayne Harry, who is an American citizen, was yesterday remanded to prison after making a court appearance before Magistrate Hazel Octive-Hamilton.
It is alleged that Harry, on Sunday last, had in his possession 6.9 kilos of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking in narcotics.
To the charge, Harry pleaded guilty. He was unrepresented. However after giving his explanation to the court, the magistrate entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
Police Prosecutor Shellon Daniels made an application for the accused to be remanded to prison, and also for the matter to be transferred to the Providence Magistrate’s Court.
He was remanded and is expected to make his next court appearance on September 7.
According to reports, Harry was attempting to board a Caribbean Airlines flight when he was stopped and his luggage was searched by ranks of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit.
A search revealed that his suitcase had a false bottom, in which a white powdery substance was found. It was later confirmed to be cocaine.
