Three people to appear at Plymouth Crown Court in drug case
THREE people are to appear at court later this year to face drug possession charges.
The trio were arrested in April after a member of the public contacted police saying they could smell cannabis coming from a room at the Premier Inn hotel in Marsh Mills.
Officers arrested four people at the building and, following further searches at addresses around the city, seized a quantity of cash and suspected illegal drugs.
As a result of further investigation three people – two men and a woman – have now been charged by police and will appear at Plymouth Crown Court in December.
