Four Men Appear In Court Charged With Drug Supply Offences - Worcester
Four men have appeared in court charged with drug supply offences after West Mercia Police seized drugs with an estimated street value of around £230,000.
Around four kilograms of a substance known as MPDV (Methylenedioxypyrovalerone) - a Class B drug often sold on by dealers as cocaine - was found during a search of an address in Westminster Road, Worcester on Monday night (13 August).
Searches were then made at an address in the Quinton area of Birmingham where a further kilogram of the same drug was found. During the course of the investigation, a large quantity of skunk cannabis along with a large amount of MDPV were also discovered.
Aaron Adams aged 26 of Marlow Road Worcester and Darren Coombes aged 27 of Middle Leasow, Quinton appeared before Worcester Magistrates Court yesterday (16 August) charged with conspiracy to supply Class B drugs and were later remanded into custody.
Two Worcester men - Emmanuel Vella aged 43 of Walnut Avenue and Anthony Russell aged 32 of Sadlers Walk, - have appeared before the city's magistrates today (17 August) also charged with conspiracy to supply Class B drugs, with Vella facing a further charge of the same offence. Both men were remanded in custody following the hearing.
Three women in their 20s from Worcester and a man in his 30s from Quinton were also arrested in connection with the drug seizures, but were later released on police bail while officers continue their inquiries.
