Woman denies attempting to smuggle guns, drugs
A 25-year-old woman faces multiple charges of attempted importation of firearms, ammunition and drugs.
Prosecutors say Shandea Rolle shipped five firearms, 420 rounds of ammunition, marijuana and marijuana edibles from the United States to The Bahamas.
American authorities allegedly intercepted the weapons and drug stash and Rolle was arrested when she went to pick up the items from a freight company on May 13.
Rolle is accused of attempted importation of an AM15 multi-caliber AR15 pistol; an STR 9C pistol; a 41 Glock pistol, an MP .380 pistol and a Taurus G3 pistol.
She’s also accused of attempting to import 100 rounds of 9mm ammunition, 64 rounds of .380 ammunition, 80 rounds of .40mm ammunition, 60 rounds of .45mm ammunition and 116 rounds of .223 ammunition in addition to a .45 magazine.
She’s further accused of attempting to import 411 grams of marijuana and 493 grams of marijuana gummy bears.
Rolle pleaded not guilty at her arraignment before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt.
She was granted $50,000 bail and returns to court for trial on December 7.
