Court hears how around half a kilo of heroin and cocaine were driven into East Devon

An Axminster woman has admitted hiring a car which was used to bring a large amount of heroin and cocaine to Devon.

Bethany Morris, aged 29, of Bonners Glen, pleaded guilty to two counts of being concerned in the supply of class A drugs when she appeared at Exeter Crown Court.

She also admitted permitting her co-defendant Bayram Erdogan to drive a car which she had hired on the A 30 at Honiton without insurance.

Erdogan, aged 19, of London, admitted possession of heroin and cocaine with intent to supply, dangerous driving, and having no insurance or licence.

All the offences arise from a police operation in which a car containing Morris and Erdogan was stopped at the Honiton junction of the A 30 on August 23.

Judge Timothy Rose adjourned sentence at Exeter Crown Court. He remanded Erdogan in custody and released Morris on bail.

He said the case is a serious one because it involves around half a kilogram of class A drugs.
