(CNS): UPDATED FRIDAY: A 46 year old Colombian national pleaded guilty to drug smuggling, Friday, following the charges and subsequent admissions by three Venezuelan men yesterday. All of the men were arrested for drug trafficking in an operation last week. They have now admitted in court to smuggling almost two kilos of cocaine. Lesme Romualdo Perez Ruiz (51), Jose Leonardo Parra Ferrini (32) and Yoandry Jose Morales Moloina (22) were all jointly charged with knowingly being concerned with the importation of a controlled drug, namely the 1.814kg of cocaine, Thursday.

Having entered guilty pleas, all four men have now been remanded in custody until later this month, when they are expected to be sentenced.

Meanwhile, a 31-year-old man from Bodden Town who was arrested during the same raid has not been charged but remains on police bail, RCIPS officials stated.
