Trio accused of Kendal class A drugs supply plot to stand trial

Carlisle Crown Court

[T]HREE men accused of plotting to supply class A drugs in South Cumbria will go on trial before a jury later this year.

Anthony Joseph Collins, 39, Darren John Morgan, 48, and 23-year-old Robert Gerard Skillen appeared together at Carlisle Crown Court over a video link from custody.

They each stand jointly charged with conspiracy to supply class A heroin and crack cocaine at Kendal.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place between November 29 and December 22 last year.

The charges they face follow the stoppage by police of a vehicle containing scores of drug wraps on the A591 in South Cumbria on December 22.

During a short court hearing, the three men each pleaded not guilty to the two allegations. They were told a trial, estimated to last four days, is due to get under way at the crown court on August 6.

In the meantime Morgan, of Stricklandgate, Kendal; Collins, of Scott Close, Kirkdale; Skillen, of Baker Street, Huyton, both Liverpool, were remanded in custody by Judge James Adkin.
