A FATHER and son facing drug supply allegations after a car was stopped near Carlisle have appeared at the city’s crown court.
Paul Roe, 56, and 30-year-old Scott Anthony Roe appeared in the dock together for a brief appearance in front of Judge James Adkin.
Paul Roe pleaded not guilty to three charges.
These allege that he possessed 27.7g of cocaine and 13.4g of ecstasy – both illegal substances of class A – and 412g of class B cannabis, all allegedly “with intent to supply” on January 27 last year.
His son Scott denied three charges, alleging being concerned in the supply of cocaine, ecstasy and cannabis between January 1 to 28 last year.
The charges are said to arise out of the police stoppage of a Ford Mondeo car, on the M6 northbound close to Southwaite services.
A trial, with a three-day estimate, is due to start at the crown court on June 24.
In the meantime Paul Roe, of Wintermans Road, and Scott Roe, of Bank Street, both Manchester, were granted bail by Judge Adkin.
