Southwold man on drug charges
A Suffolk man accused of importing cannabis from India to the UK will stand trial next month.
Terrence Smith, of Foster Close, Southwold, was charged with the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition on the importation of a class B drug after 8kg of cannabis resin was found inside suitcases by UK Border Agency staff.
Two suitcases were being delivered from India to Smith's home when they were intercepted.
Smith, who is also accused of producing 11 cannabis plants and possessing more than 1kg of the drug, did not enter any pleas when he appeared at North East Suffolk Magistrates Court in Lowestoft on Tuesday.
The 55-year-old has now been bailed until March 4 when the case will be heard at Ipswich Crown Court.
