Prison for west Cumbrian man with £5,500 of cocaine in car

A man caught with £5,500 of cocaine in his car has been told he will be going to prison.

Scott Daglish, 51, was arrested after police stopped him on the A66 at Thornthwaite near Keswick at about 6pm on Friday June 21.

Daglish, of Lonsdale Place, Flimby, near Maryport, pleaded guilty to possessing the class A drug with intent to supply it.

He also admitted possessing cannabis for his own use.

His barrister Alison Whalley told the court that Daglish, who had a conviction for a similar offence in the early 1990s, was not a dealer himself, but had been paid £450 to transport the cocaine, a class A drug, as a courier.

Prosecutor Gerard Rogerson said that he needed time to consider whether to accept that explanation.

Daglish did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody until Friday, September 6, when he will be sentenced.

Judge Paul Batty QC prison was “inevitable”.

He asked probation officers to prepare a brief pre-sentence report, but said it would only help him decide how long the sentence should be.
