Men charged after drug seizure at LPIA
Two men pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges stemming from the seizure of 15 kilos of cocaine at Lynden Pindling International Airport on Sunday.
Police arrested Patrick Pyfrom, 45, and Valentino Antoine, 38, after they disembarked a private plane. Police allegedly found the drugs, with a street value of$256,000, in a suitcase that one of the men carried.
Pyfrom and Antoine appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Carolita Bethell yesterday on charges of cocaine importation, drug possession with intent to supply and conspiring to commit the offenses.
Magistrate Bethell will hold a bail hearing next week to determine whether the men will be freed on bail pending trial.
