Police find £ 130,000 worth of drugs after stopping a car near Carlisle

A forty-year-old man is the second person to be prosecuted this week following a high-quality drug seizure by Cumbrian police officers.

Quynh Thai, a 40-year-old motorist, was stopped by a police patrol on the M6 ​​motorway south of Carlisle, and officers who then searched his car found around 13 kilos of cannabis in the trunk.

The shipment has a potential street value of up to £ 130,000, the city’s Rickergate Magistrates Court heard.

The defendant, who informed the court that he did not have a permanent address, pleaded guilty to possessing the class B drug to be given to others.

The defendant was stopped after leaving the M6 ​​at junction 42 and being followed by police. Thai’s car was searched after stopping at Durdar Road Newbiggin Road, south of Carlisle.

After the defendant, who is currently sentenced to probation, made the admission of guilt, the deputy district judge Gerald Chalk put him in custody.

He sent the case to the Carlisle Crown Court on October 11 for a judgment to be heard.

Earlier this week, Besnik Kryeziu, 29, without a permanent address, also admitted in the same court that he was supplying cannabis with the intent of possessing cannabis.

He was caught in Minster Close, Workington on September 6th with £ 40,000 worth of cannabis in the trunk of his car. He was also taken into custody and will be sentenced in front of the Crown Court on October 8th.
