Carlisle drugs supply man locked up for three years

Charlie Harrington

[A] MAN has been jailed for drugs supply crimes which came to light after a vehicle was pulled over on the outskirts of Carlisle.

Charlie Harrington, 22, was the passenger in a car stopped by police at Newbiggin Road, Durdar, on the night of December 28 last year.

Carlisle Crown Court heard Harrington immediately handed over a packet of cannabis from his underwear. Officers, who had noted an “overpowering” smell of the class B drug coming from the vehicle, seized more bags from the boot.

They also recovered an aftershave tin – bearing Harrington’s fingerprints – which contained high purity cocaine potentially worth up to £2,300. In addition, a bulking agent, weighing scales and plastic bags were found, along with a drug-related mobile phone text.

Harrington, of Crow Lane West, Newton-le-Willows, admitted possessing both cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply.

Judge Peter Davies, who heard the defendant had a previous class A drugs peddling conviction on his record, jailed him for three years.
