A WOMAN alleged to have played a “significant role” in the supply of Class A drugs in Chard has been ordered to stand trial at Taunton Crown Court.

Ebony Lindsay-Coore, 18, of Sandcliffe Road, Erith, London, was brought before Somerset Magistrates at Yeovil in custody after being arrested by the police.

She was charged that on March 9 at Chard she had in her possession a quantity of crack cocaine with intent to supply to another.

She was further alleged with being in possession of a quantity of heroin with intent to supply and being in possession of £163.45 in cash, charged in relation to the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Prosecutor Lindsey Baker said that when the defendant was arrested and searched by police she was found in possession of 92 wraps of crack cocaine and 64 wraps of heroin. The third charge was also linked to the drugs offences.

Lindsay-Coore did not enter a plea to any of the allegations and the magistrates said the case was so serious that she must be sent to Taunton Crown Court to stand trial.

All four matters were adjourned until November 18 when she must appear before a pre-trial hearing at Taunton.

In the meantime she was released on unconditional bail.
