A teenager alleged to have been found with seven concealed wraps of cocaine, a packet of the same drug and six wraps of heroin has made his first appearance before a magistrates’ court.

Callum Hartley, 19, of Gorton Street, Blackpool, is charged with possessing cocaine and heroin in the resort with intent to supply both drugs on June 28.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, has asked for the case to be sent to crown court.

Defence lawyer, Stephen Duffy, said his 
client had indicated he would plead not guilty to the offence.

Hartley was bailed to appear at Preston Crown Court.

He was told he must 
appear at the higher court on December 10 when he appeared before Blackpool magistrates.
