[A] KENDAL man who admits conspiring to supply class A drugs was warned a prison sentence is “inevitable”.

Jonathan Calvert, 31, entered guilty pleas to two crimes when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.

These were conspiracy to supply both heroin and cocaine to another. The offences are said to have been committed between 12th and 29th March this year.

The court heard Calvert had submitted a basis for his guilty pleas which was still to be considered by the Crown Prosecution Service.

The case was adjourned by Judge James Adkin until 9th June. On that date Calvert, of Stricklandgate, Kendal, will be sentenced along with two other men who admitted the same offences during a previous court hearing.

Calvert was remanded in custody until that date and told by Judge Adkin that “custody is inevitable”.

That same warning was given by the judge to two other men – said to have been involved in the criminal enterprise – at a previous crown court hearing.

Sean Till, 23, of no fixed address, and Stephen Welsh, 31, of Liverpool, have both pleaded guilty to conspiring to supply both heroin and cocaine.

They are also due to learn their fate on June 9.
