Community call-outs result in recovery of drugs

A MAN has pleaded guilty to intending to supply cannabis after a drugs warrant was executed in Highbridge.

Luke Rovira, aged 25, of Alexander Court on Highbridge Quay was arrested and charged with the possession of the drug on September 9, when a small quantity was found by police.

Rovira had already been on crown court bail for possession with the intent to supply �4,525 worth of cannabis, which was seized in September last year.

This week he appeared before Taunton Crown Court where a two-day trial saw him found guilty. He has been remanded on bail for a pre-sentence report.

PC Ryan Dingham was the officer in the case and was present throughout the trial. He said: “We will continue to target drug dealing and associated crime wherever and whenever we come across it or are told about it.

“If you choose to blight our communities with this illegal trade we will do everything in our power to prevent it and bring offenders to justice.”

It was the second drugs warrant executed against the family in the past 12 months.
