Man faces six drug charges

A MAN accused of six charges of possession of thousands of pounds worth of illegal party drugs at Burton Agnes has appeared for the first time at Hull Crown Court.

Mark V Taylor, 48, spoke only to confirm his name and pleaded not guilty to each of six charges of possession of illegal drugs with intent to supply them to another.

He made a 15-minute appearance before the court on Tuesday last week.

The charges include possession of cocaine, mephedrone, trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine, and two illegal class C drugs.

It follows a raid on a house in St Martin’s Drive, Burton Agnes, where Humberside Police seized a cloth bag.

Taylor, now of Pasture Close, Kilham, was represented in court by his barrister Richard Thompson.

Crown Barrister Stephen Welch set out the legal timetable for the case, but did not go into detail about the allegations faced by Mr Taylor.

Recorder Penelope Moreland adjourned the case for a scheduled trial to take place at Hull Crown Court on a date to be fixed in the week of March 21.

Taylor was allowed to walk free on bail.
