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

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.

He is also charged with being concerned in the production of cannabis between January 19, 2019, and February 1, 2019.

Magistrates declined jurisdiction and sent the case to the crown court.
