A teenager will appear in crown court next month accused of throwing drugs and phones into the grounds of a Suffolk prison.
Lewis Poole made his first court appearance before magistrates in Ipswich on Tuesday.
The 19-year-old, of Woden Ave, Stanway, Colchester, was charged with throwing 30.88 grammes of cannabis and 25.45g of the synthetic drug ‘spice’ into Highpoint Prison, in Stradishall, on August 15 last year.
He was also charged with throwing in a Samsung smartphone and 10 small Zanco ‘butt’ phones – so-called due to the method of concealment chosen by prisoners in possession of contraband.
Poole gave no immediate indication of plea to the charges – the first of which can only be dealt with by the higher court.
