OWEN HARRIES, 44, of Aberporth, has denied driving while high on cocaine.

Harries was alleged to have been driving a Fiat on the A487 at Aberaeron on March 13.

The prosecution allege Harries recorded 58 micrograms per litre of blood (µg/L) of cocaine, and 795µg/L of benzoylecgonine in his blood.

The legal limits for those drugs – to exclude accidental exposure – are 10µg/L for cocaine and 50µg/L for benzoylecgonine.

Harries pleaded not guilty to both charges at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court.

He was granted bail until the next hearing on September 14.

TRINITY TOFANI-SMITH, 21, of Bridge Street in Llanon, has denied drug driving.

Tofani-Smith was alleged to have been driving on the A487 Penparcu Road on January 2. When tested, she recorded 2.1 micrograms of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol per litre of blood (µg/L). The legal limit – which eliminates accidental exposure – is 2µg/L.

She pleaded not guilty on May 17.

When appearing at Llanelli Magistrates’ Court on September 5, Tofani-Smith was granted bail until her trial date of November 16.
