A George Town resident pleaded guilty in Summary Court on Tuesday to a charge of importing 204 tablets of the controlled drug Alprazolam, sold under the trade name Xanax, without lawful excuse or authorisation to do so.

Akinyele Jawanza Logan admitted committing the offence on July 19, 2018.

Logan, represented by attorney Dennis Brady, was further charged in connection with 52.5 tablets of the same drug found at his residence the same day. He pleaded guilty to simple possession, but not guilty to possession with intent to supply.

Crown counsel Scott Wainwright said charges relating to the drug found in Logan’s home would be reviewed.

The defendant also pleaded guilty to charges of possessing 1 gram and 1.2 grams of ganja, consumption of ganja and possession of a grinder, a utensil used in the preparation of a controlled drug.
