A Canadian resident was formally charged in Magistrates’ Court today with importing cannabis and cocaine with an estimated street value nearly $700,000.

Alexta Gill, 28, who resides in Scarborough, Ontario, was alleged to have imported the illegal drugs on or around March 4.

According to the Crown, the estimated value of the cannabis was roughly $474,000 and the cocaine was valued at about $201,300.

The defendant was not required to enter a plea to the indictable offence which will go to the Supreme Court.

Magistrate Tyrone Chin released him on $20,000 bail with a $40,000 surety and ordered him to attend the Hamilton Police Station three days a week, with orders to surrender his travel documents.

The case was set down for the arraignment session on the first day of September.

At an earlier plea court session this month, Ngongo-Eric Sampassa, 31, and Radcliff Brown, 54, who also live in Canada were with importing cannabis around the same time as Gill.
