Men charged with smuggling $3.1 million in coke
One alleged coke smuggler was granted $10,000 bail and the other has made an application for bail after they were charged with smuggling $3.1 million in cocaine into The Bahamas.
Brandon Miller, a New Providence resident, and Johnie Emil, of Eleuthera, were charged in the Magistrates Court on Tuesday with conspiracy to possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply and conspiracy to import dangerous drugs.
Both men pleaded not guilty.
They were arrested by police days after duffel bugs filled with cocaine were found during a joint operation at an airstrip in Governor’s Harbour, Eleuthera.
Emil will seek to get bail during a hearing on April 12.
The pair’s trial date has been scheduled for September 1.
