Man Accused Of Importing Cocaine To Face Royal Court

A 20-year-old man has appeared in Jersey's Magistrate's Court charged with importing around £220,000 worth of cocaine into the island.

It's after Customs officers discovered a kilo of the Class A drugs in a vehicle that arrived on a ferry from Poole last Wednesday (1 June).

Elijah Eric Silbourne - who is from the UK - has been remanded in custody and is due to appear again before the Royal Court on Thursday 28 July.

A woman who was travelling with him was also arrested at the same time but was later released without charge.
