A man arrested as part of a major police crackdown on drugs offences has appeared at Norwich Crown Court.

Thomas Ives, 30, of Lower Farm Road, East Winch, has been charged with conspiracy to supply a Class A drug, cocaine in King’s Lynn.

The charge states that between May 1 and October 8, this year, he conspired with others to supply a quantity of cocaine.

Ives appeared over a link from Norwich prison for the hearing but no charge was put to him.

His barrister, Gulam Ahmed, said that they had not been able to see Ives and asked for more time so he can be seen by his lawyers.
