A BLOND-haired youth has been remanded in custody over his alleged role in dealing heroin and crack cocaine in Swindon.

Pale-faced Connor Cahill, 20, of no fixed address, is said to have sold heroin and crack cocaine to undercover police officers in the town centre in September.

He has been charged with two counts of supplying a class A drug and three counts of possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and heroin.

Appearing before Swindon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday dressed in a grey tracksuit, Cahill entered no pleas to the five charges.

Magistrates remanded him in custody for a plea and trial preparation hearing at Swindon Crown Court on November 8.

Cahill mouthed "thank you" to his solicitor as he was taken from the dock. 

The case comes as Wiltshire Police steps up its efforts against County Lines drug dealing, with raids on suspected crack dens.
