Lancashire suspects charged following drugs operation
Three people from Lancashire have been charged with drugs offences after the vehicle they were travelling in was stopped on the M5 near Exeter as part of a South West regional drugs operation.
John Holland, 44, from Field Street, Skelmersdale and Luke Shinner, 18, of Inskip, Skelmersdale, were both arrested on 8 March and have been charged with possession with intent to supply heroin and crack cocaine.
A 17-year-old boy, also from Skelmersdale, has been charged with the same offences, as well as possession of cannabis.
A search of the vehicle led to 200g of heroin and 162g of crack cocaine being seized by officers.
All three have been released on court bail to return to Exeter Crown Court on 8 April.
