A man has been cleared of being involved in heroin dealing.
A jury returned unanimous not guilty verdicts following the trial of Wayne McCulloch at Carlisle Crown Court.
The trial had heard how McCulloch, 34, was put under surveillance by police along with his partner Cheryl Parker.
Officers later entered their home and found “a large amount of heroin”, the jury in the case were told.
But McCulloch, of Springlea Caravan Park, Allonby, had denied being concerned in the supply of heroin and possessing the drug with intent to supply.
The jury were told Parker had pleaded guilty to these same charges.
The jury returned not guilty verdicts on McCulloch after just over an hour of deliberations.
