Bahamas Court Hears Boat Heading For Bermuda

February 7, 2022

A law enforcement officer testified in a Bahamian Court about allegedly discovering “suspected cocaine” on a vessel that the defendants — who have denied the charges — claimed was “heading for Bermuda.”

The Bahamas media reported, “A Drug Enforcement Unit officer yesterday testified about discovering three bags with suspected cocaine on a vessel captained by a Dominican and Colombian national in the Exuma chain last year.

“The two men are charged with conspiracy to possess dangerous drugs with intent to supply, conspiracy to import cocaine, possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply and importation of drugs.

“The charges stem from allegations that they were found with 61lbs of cocaine, estimated to be worth $432,000, in Clarence Town, Long Island, and George Town, Exuma, last August.

“Officers further allege the men conspired to possess the drugs and imported them into the country the same month. The men have denied the allegations.

“At the resumption of their trial yesterday, Sgt Brown testified of his involvement in arresting the nationals following officers’ seizure of the cocaine.

“The two men on board the boat gave officers their names, he said, and later told officers they were heading for Bermuda and had only stopped at Long Island on their way to refuel their vessel.”
