Trio in court charged with drugs conspiracy

Have your say

THREE people have appeared in court charged with conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

It comes after a police investigation into heroin and crack cocaine being brought into Portsmouth.

Officers executed warrants at homes in London and one in Copnor, Portsmouth, on March 8 and 9.

Kaylon Wallace, 24, from Southend Lane, London, Eduardo Rodriques, 21, of no fixed address, and a 16-year-old girl from London, appeared at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The girl cannot be named for legal reasons.

All three are charged with conspiracy to supply class A and spoke only to confirm their names and addresses.

Chairman of the magistrates John Ralphs remanded the two men into custody and the girl into the care of the local authority.

The trio are due to appear at Portsmouth Crown Court next month for a preliminary hearing.

Seven people were arrested after the police raids.

A man, 42, a woman, 37, both from Portsmouth, were bailed until June.

A 45-year-old man, a 42 year-old woman and a 25-year-old woman, from London, were also bailed.
