Carlisle man admits heroin supply crime

A CARLISLE man stopped by police on the M6 has pleaded guilty to a heroin supply crime.

Shaun Barrie Pattie, 52, faced one charge when he appeared at the city’s crown court in front of Judge Peter Davies.

Pattie admitted possessing the class A drug with intent to supply on the motorway, at Clifton Moor, on 27th September.

The court heard he was accepting the offence on the basis that he was a heroin “courier”. However, this is disputed by the prosecution, which alleges that Pattie played a more prominent part in the criminal enterprise.

Judge Davies adjourned the case until Friday in order to seek a resolution. On that day, Pattie is expected to submit a formal basis of plea, while the prosecution has been given a chance to serve more evidence in the case.

In the meantime Pattie, of Botcherby Avenue, Botcherby, was remanded in custody by the judge.
