A ST MICHAEL man was granted $50 000 bail when he pleaded guilty to four drug-related charges in the District “B” Magistrates’ Court today.

He is Anthony Shawn Simmons of Hindsbury Road, St Michael who was arrested yesterday after he went to the airport to clear a barbecue grill on a wooden pallet from Canada.

Police say he was intercepted on a nearby roadway by members of the Drug Squad and taken to the Oistins Police Station.  A search of the pallet reportedly revealed 12 packages of compressed cannabis weighing a total of 13 pounds.

Simmons will return to Court on January 20, 2015 pending a pre-sentencing report. (PR/NB)
