A PAIR of teenagers have admitted taking part in an attempt to rob a man of drugs earlier this year.

The 17-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl both appeared before Swindon Crown Court and admitted attempted robbery.

They were part of an alleged group of four who are said to have gone to a house in Bolingbroke Road, Moredon, to try to steal the drugs on Tuesday, January 8 this year.

Judge Douglas Field remitted both to the youth court where they will be sentenced by magistrates on April 30.

A third girl, also aged 16, admitted the offence at an earlier hearing and has already been dealt with by the lower court.

Samuel Johnston, 20, of Huddleston Close, Gorse Hill, has denied attempted robbery and possessing a bladed article and is in custody awaiting trial.
