Two charged over drugs
An Italian couple have been charged with their involvement in dealing in cocaine and cannabis.
Giovanni Lassandro, 51, and his 47-year-old partner Serafina Schembri, who live in Gzira, pleaded not guilty to the charges. Both were charged with the possession of 50 grams of cocaine and half a kilo of cannabis with the intent to sell the drugs.
Mr Lassandro alone was charged with trafficking in the drugs while his partner was charged with trying to conceal evidence from police when she threw some of the drugs under the car while police searched the vehicle yesterday.
The couple were denied bail at this stage.
