Three people have denied supplying class A drugs in the Teme Crescent area of Droitwich.

Phillip Brown, Leanne Edwards and Adrian Lynch have all denied conspiracy to supply crack cocaine and heroin when they appeared at Worcester Crown Court on August 20.

The alleged offence was said to have taken place between June 1 and June 13 this year.

Adrian Lynch, 27, from Leonard Road, Lozells, Birmingham was held on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.

Leanne Edwards, 42, of Teme Crescent, Droitwich, and Phillip Brown, 38, of Handsworth, Birmingham, were also arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

60 wraps of heroin and crack were recovered with a street value of more than £500.

Mr Lynch and Mr Brown appeared at court in front of Judge Robert Juckes QC whilst Miss Edwards denied her part in the drug conspiracy via video-link from HM Prison Eastwood Park.

Speaking about the dangers of class A drugs, PC Rich Rees from Droitwich Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), said: “Crack and heroin is a poison and it ruins peoples lives.

“It’s availability in the town has a knock-on effect on other areas of business, such as anti-social behaviour and thefts which is why tackling drug dealing is a priority.

“It is possible to make Droitwich a drug-free town but we need the public to be our eyes and ears and give us the information.”

Mr Lynch, Mr Brown and Miss Edwards are next scheduled to appear at a pre-trial review hearing on October 18.

They are also awaiting trial which is due to take place on November 20 at Worcester Crown Court.
