Arrest warrant issued for Cumbrian sailor
Last updated at 09:02, Tuesday, 04 February 2014
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man from the Keswick area who is believed to have left the country on a ship.
Graeme Donald James Gentles, 24, was due at Carlisle Crown Court yesterday on drugs charges.
But he failed to attend, with his solicitor telling the judge his absence was “not unexpected” since he had “got a job training on a merchant ship”.
Gentles, of Brackenhill, Braithwaite, near Keswick, is due back in July and will be arrested unless he gives himself up to the police as soon as his ship docks.
He is accused of seven charges of possessing, producing or supplying class A and B drugs including cannabis, methylenedioxymethylamphetamine (MDMA) and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).
