Three men charged with conspiring to supply Class A drug cocaine face trial in May. The men appeared at court via video link from HMP Bristol today (December 30, 2022).
Anes Troudi, 39, of Midland Terrace in Bristol, is charged with three counts of conspiracy to supply cocaine between March 2020 and January 2021. He is also charged with conspiracy to purchase or acquire a firearm in May 2020.
Gary Browne, 38, of Dymboro Avenue in Midsomer Norton, is charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine between March and June 2020. He also faces a charge of possessing cocaine with intent to supply in November this year.
Adam Malik, 32, of First Avenue in Bristol, is charged with conspiracy to supply cocaine between March and June 2020. The men attended Bristol Crown Court via video link for a plea and trial preparation hearing.
No pleas were entered during the 11-minute hearing today. Following an application by defence barristers, Judge Julian Lambert adjourned the case to a plea and trial preparation hearing on February 17.
The judge extended credit for guilty pleas until then. He remanded the men in custody pending an estimated three-week trial set for May 22 next year.
The judge told the men: “Listen carefully to what your lawyers have to say to you on the pros and cons of the situation.”
