A woman has appeared in court accused of intending and offering to supply illegal drugs.

Leeann Payne, 35, of Herbert Ward Way, Terrington St Clement, gave no indication of plea to the charges against her during a hearing at Lynn’s magistrates court yesterday.

She faces three allegations of offering to supply cocaine, a class A drug, plus one charge of offering to supply cannabis, a class B drug.

She is also charged with separate counts of possessing both cocaine and cannabis with intent to supply.

The alleged offences are said to have been committed between January 22 and February 5 this year.

Alison Cotterill, prosecuting, said the court’s sentencing powers were insufficient to deal with the charges against Payne.

Ruth Johnson, defending, made no observations.

District judge Nicholas Watson ordered Payne to next appear before Norwich Crown Court on June 30.

She was given unconditional bail until that date.
