Jury to decide Workington man's drugs courier charge
Last updated at 11:38, Thursday, 14 August 2014
A jury is set to begin its deliberations over whether a 33-year-old Workington man acted as a courier for a drugs gang.
James Moore, 33, is accused of travelling out of Cumbria to transport substances in a wider criminal enterprise.
Judge Paul Batty is due to complete his summing it up at Carlisle Crown Court today.
Moore, of the town's Forge Hill Park, denies assisting in the supply of class A or B drugs. He is accused alongside Dale Cooke, 32, of Reins Road in Brighouse, Yorkshire, who denies conspiracy to supply class A drugs between May and July 2013.
Ten members of the gang have already admitted their guilt but the trial was told this did not automatically mean Moore and the other man on trial were also guilty.
