A WOMAN has told a jury she knew nothing about a bag of illegal drugs found by police at her Carlisle home.

Sharnee Dawkins, 29, is one of three people on trial at the city’s crown court, where she gave evidence today (WED).

Dawkins, along with Carlisle man Daniel Brennan and 19-year-old James Bailey, of Skelmersdale, deny one charge.

This alleges conspiracy to supply class A drugs between June and November.

Dawkins’ Crummock Street home was visited by police on October 15. She was arrested after a bread bag containing heroin and crack cocaine was found on a kitchen breakfast bar, while “drugs” packaging was located in a refuse sack.

Asked in court whether she had ever seen the bread bag before police arrived, Dawkins replied: “Never had noticed it, never seen it. No.”

Neither did she know anything about the packaging, she said; nor that a man she had allowed to stay at her home on October 12 was part of illegal substance supply enterprise in which 13 people admit being involved.

Dawkins’ lawyer, Tariq Khawam asked her: “Can you please tell the jury: were you involved in any agreement to supply drugs?”

The mum-of-two responded: “No. I know nothing about drugs.”

Jurors have heard she has no criminal conviction to her name, and the trial continues.
