THREE women – including two from Carlisle – have admitted involvement in a county lines class A drugs supply conspiracy.
Cheryl Evans, aged 49, Zoe Marie Pique, 41, and 20-year-old Aneesa Ashraf each faced two charges when they appeared at the city’s crown court.
All three admitted conspiring together with persons unknown to unlawfully supply both crack cocaine and heroin on May 9 this year. They are said to have been part of a plot to transport the illicit substances from the London area to Carlisle.
The court heard Pique, of Sheffield Street, Carlisle, was “the first point of contact” made by criminals during the illegal county lines enterprise.
Pique, Evans – also of Sheffield Street – and Ashraf, of Grenfell Road, Maidenhead, Berkshire, had their cases adjourned by Judge James Adkin.
All three are due to be sentenced at the crown court on July 15. In the meantime they were all remanded in custody.
