AN ESSEX man found in possession of class A drugs in Andover will appear at Winchester Crown Court next month.

Tyrell Cocker, of Tine Road, Chigwell, was found carrying quantities of diamorphine and cocaine with intent to supply in Andover on May 16, last year.

The 24-year-old appeared at Basingstoke magistrates court where a plea of guilty was indicated.

The case was sent to crown court as the defendant’s previous record meant the offence was indictable-only.

Mr Cocker will appear at Winchester Crown Court on March 18.

He was released on unconditional bail until then.
