Men charged after Xanax, ecstasy and crystal meth bust

Two men were charged yesterday in connection with the seizure of nearly 9,000 illegal pills, including ecstasy, methamphetamine, amphetamine, Xanax and Oxycodone, and marijuana.

Adam Johnson, 25, of Dorchester Street and Jermaine Adderley, 25, of Dorchester Street were arraigned before Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.

They both pleaded not guilty to four counts of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply and three counts of storage of medicinal drugs with intent to unlawfully sell.

Adderley alone faced a separate charge of possession of dangerous drugs in relation to the seizure of marijuana on the same date.

On April 30, officers carried out a search of a Dorchester Street home where they seized a pound of marijuana, valued at $1,000; 2,425 ecstasy pills, valued at $110,000; 10 methamphetamine pills of an unknown value; 13 Oxycodone pills of an unknown value; 5,448 alprazolam pills of unknown value; and 1,090 Xanax pills of an unknown value. The clinical name for Xanax is alprazolam.

They were remanded to Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.

They return to court on August 15.
