Carlisle men admit conspiracy to supply drugs

Two Carlisle men have admitted their part in a plan to supply illegal drugs, including cannabis.

Gary Macauley, 44, and 20-year-old Ashley Macauley, both from Finn Avenue in the city, pleaded guilty to conspiring to supply controlled Class B drugs at Carlisle Crown Court.

They were charged alongside Andrew Donnachie, a 55-year-old from Lathom Street in Preston, who had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing.

Tim Evans, prosecuting, said that both of the Carlisle men had organised the conspiracy between October 2013 and March this year, and Donnachie had travelled from the Manchester area. He added: “There was an earlier trip in October that was drug-related.”

Judge Paul Batty said that their crime was “extremely serious” and added: “Each of you have a very poor record. Each of you is remanded in custody pending sentence.”

All three were remanded in custody and will be sentenced on October 2.
