Two young men who were found with more than one hundred grams of cannabis on a vessel back in 2016 have pleaded guilty to the offences.
They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply to another when they appeared before Magistrate Shawn Innocent on Monday, September 17.
The court heard that 29-year-old Marley Donovan of Carrot Bay and 25-year-old Cassini Skelton of West End were found travelling on sea between Cane Garden Bay and Jost Van Dyke when they were apprehended.
Meanwhile, Donovan was also slapped with a separate drug charge after being found with 20.3 grams of cannabis in Carrot Bay on June 3, 2017.
He pleaded guilty that offence.
The duo is currently on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to return to court on September 28.
