A MAN from London appeared at Dorchester Crown Court on Friday, charged with possessing a controlled class A drug with intent.

Carsu Aiken, 25, of St. Paul’s Road in Tottenham, London, pleaded guilty to the charge.

Representing Aiken, Mr Charles Gabb said Aiken was doing a favour for a friend by acting as a courier to transport the drug from London to Weymouth.

He said Aiken also admitted to keeping a small amount for his personal use as payment. Aiken’s sentencing has been adjourned pending the submission of a pre-sentence report. He will remain in custody until sentencing.
