Melksham man who dealt cocaine in Calne may be jailed
12:20pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Latest News
A man who was involved in the trade in cocaine has been warned he could be facing a jail term.
Ross Fleming pleaded guilty to a charge of being involved in the supply of hard drugs when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court today.
Fleming, 35, who it is thought was involved in the drugs trade in Calne, admitted having the cocaine on Monday, July 25, last year.
Fleming, of Linnet Lane, Melksham, pleaded guilty to one charge of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs.
Marcus Davey, defending, said his client pleaded guilty on the basis he was a low level supplier.
Claire Marlow, prosecuting, said that the crown accepted what he said as the purity of the drugs found was very low.
Judge Euan Ambrose adjourned the case until October 22 to give the probation service time to compile a pre-sentence report.
He released Fleming on bail on condition he lives and sleeps at his home address and co-operates with the making of the report.
But he said: "The fact that I am granting you bail, or rather extending your bail, and ordering a report does not mean that the court will be passing a non-custodial sentence.
"Don't read anything into the extension of bail and the ordering of a report."
