HAMILTON, Bermuda  - A 39-year-old Barbadian man is to stand trial in Supreme Court after being accused of smuggling approximately US$178,000 of cocaine into Bermuda. Dave Trotman appeared in Magistrates’ Court on Friday to face charges  of importing a controlled substance and possessing a controlled drug with intent to supply in an incident on December 18. Trotman was not required to enter a plea as his case is indictable and will be dealt with in Supreme Court. No bail application was made for Trotman who remained silent throughout the proceedings.   Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner remanded Trotman in custody until  January 4, when he is scheduled to return to court.
