TWO men and a youth are to be tried for allegedly supplying class A drugs in Stroud and Gloucester earlier this year.
The trio – Matthew Edrich, aged 44, of no fixed abode, James Joyce, 18 of Hucclecote Road, Gloucester, and a 17-year-old Gloucester youth – have pleaded not guilty to possessing class A drugs with the intent to sell on April 24, 2019.
Caleb Goggins, 18, of Hatherley Road admitted the same charge at an earlier hearing at Gloucester Crown Court.
And today Sallie-Ann Lane, aged 31, of Charlbury Road, Tetbury, pleaded guilty to her part in the same offence and the judge, Ian Lawrie QC, ordered that a pre-sentence report be prepared on her.
The judge bailed her pending the outcome of the trial of those who have denied any part in the offending.
Their trial will begin on Oct 14.
