Man ad­mits he had kilo and a half of Class As


A man found with a kilo-and-a-half of Class A drugs and £85,000 is await­ing sen­tence.

Po­lice found the items when they searched a prop­erty con­nected to Kevin Moyle.

He ap­peared at Bris­tol Crown Court via video link on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 30.

Moyle, 58, of Moor­lands in Bath, pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing with in­tent to sup­ply quan­ti­ties of co­caine and heroin and pos­sess­ing £85,591.30 in crim­i­nal prop­erty.

The court heard it is Moyle’s third drug-traf­fick­ing con­vic­tion.

David Scutt, pros­e­cut­ing, asked that sen­tence be post­poned.

He told the court po­lice linked Moyle to a kilo of co­caine and half a kilo of heroin.

He said fur­ther analysis of the drugs and phones was on­go­ing and other peo­ple are be­ing in­ves­ti­gated in con­nec­tion with the case.

Mr Scutt said Moyle’s ba­sis of plea was likely to be that, for two years, he was forced to deal drugs by peo­ple from the Liver­pool area.

Judge Ju­lian Lam­bert ad­journed the case for men­tion on Novem­ber 13.
