Two women from Canada appeared in Magistrates Court today [Dec 13] where they were charged with conspiring with others to import cannabis, which was said to be worth over $544,000.

29-year-old Amanda Huggins and 28-year-old Mekeela Lye were charged with conspiring with others to import cannabis, which was alleged to have been between a date unknown and 1st December 2016.

A second charge was that on 1st December, in St George’s, they possessed  cannabis and did so with intent to supply. Both Huggins and Lye pleaded not guilty to both charges.
