A MAN was remanded to prison yesterday after he was arraigned on a charge of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

Franky Killick, 32, of Bacardi Road appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney accused of being found with five pounds of Indian hemp (marijuana) on Wednesday, November 9.

The drugs have an estimated street value of $5,000.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge when called to answer to the allegation.

Due to the nature of the charge, Killick was remanded to the Department of Correctional Services to await trial on January 12, 2017.

However, he has the right to apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

A conviction for possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply carries a possible fine and/or up to seven years in prison.
