Two Canadian students fined on drug charges

Two Canadian students have been fined $20,000 each after appearing in court today on several drugs charges.

Pauline Ann Dang and Indigo Akeyla Wills-Dorsey, both aged 21, arrived here from Canada on the same flight yesterday.

They cleared immigration and were each interviewed by Customs officials.  A search of each of their suitcases discovered 24 taped packages containing cannabis weighing seven kilograms in a false compartment.

They were charged separately with possession of cannabis; possession with intent to supply, trafficking and importation.

The duo appeared in the District C Magistrates Court today before Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch.

They were each fined $10,000 for possession and $10,000 for importation. On the charges of trafficking, and possession with intent to supply, they were convicted, reprimanded and discharged.

Dang and Wills-Dorsey are on remand.  They have been given until July 21 to pay the fines or spend two years in prison.
