A man has denied drug-related charges and will appear at the crown court next month.

Kacanik Gjocaj, 28, of Cherrydown Avenue, Chingford, appeared at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Friday and pleaded not guilty to three charges.

Gjocaj is charged with possession of cannabis with intent to supply in Higham on February 2, 2019 and possessing criminal property – £780 in cash – on the same date.

Magistrates released him on unconditional bail.
