HAMILTON, Bermuda - A Barbadian national accused of importing more than 700 grams of cocaine worth around US$178 000 into Bermuda has been granted bail after initially being remanded in custody.

Dave Trotman, 39, was charged last month with importing a controlled substance and possessing a controlled substance with intent to supply.

The charges relate to an incident which took place in St George’s on December 18 and involves 741 grams of cocaine.

While Trotman was initially remanded by Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner, lawyer Kenville Savoury on Friday made a successful bail application.

Warner released Trotman on US$25 000 bail with a like surety, ordering him to surrender his travel documents and report daily to the Somerset Police Station. He must also provide the courts with a fixed address in Bermuda and must ask the court’s permission to change that address.

No date has yet been set for his trial. (CMC)

Maybe Bermuda could keep him, since he's of no use to Barbados either.
