Former customs broker pleads not guilty to drug charges
The former customs broker who is accused to importing 37 pounds of compressed cannabis in an air compressor from Canada several days ago has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Forty-eight-year old Joanne Cheeseman of 2nd Avenue, Melvins, Black Rock, St. Michael entered the plea when she appeared in court yesterday.
She was granted $50,000 bail with one surety and is scheduled to reappear in the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on September 22, 2014. She surrendered her passport as a condition of her bail.
Meantime, Cheeseman pleaded guilty to not having third party insurance or road tax.
She was fined $750 forthwith for the insurance and $474 for the road tax. Both were paid.
