TWO Bimini men were charged in a New Providence court on Wednesday in connection with a major drug seizure on that island last Sunday.

Romeris Stuart, 45, and Richard Smith, 44, both of Bailey Town, Bimini, appeared before Magistrate Andrew Forbes where they pleaded not guilty to possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply.

The charge stems from a drug seizure that occurred in Bimini on Sunday, March 19. The accused men were remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until May 31 for trial.

A 42-year-old Abaco man was also arraigned on a drug charge in New Providence in a separate matter.

Shelrey Swain, of Murphy Town, pleaded not guilty to possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply, and was remanded to the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services until June 16 for trial.
