A FIFTH man has admitted his role in a conspiracy to supply cocaine in Swindon.

Thomas Price is one of 12 people accused of being involved in the drug trade between July 23 last year and April 30 this year.

The 25-year-old, of Kent Road, Old Town, admitted the charge when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court.

Four others, Zak Knight, 25, of Tyndale Gardens, Christopher Smith, 27, of Bridge Street; Jordan Packer, 27, of Burford Avenue, Walcot; and Alex Scotford, 30, of Haydon View Road, Pinehurst, have already pleaded guilty.

Judge Tim Mousley QC adjourned his case until the cases of other defendants have been resolved.

And he altered Price’s bail to allow him to Portugal for a few days and then to Ibiza for a week during the summer.

Five other men and two women have yet to enter pleas to the charge and are due to attend a hearing on Friday, July 25. They are Ben Blackmore, 24, Naunton Road, and Tyron Harman, 27, of Drakes Way, both Walcot, Stuart Wall, 35, of Lansdown Road, Old Town, Darren Lazarus, 32, of Potters Bar, and Amy Brown, 33, St Albans, both Hertfordshire, Judmir Shazivari, 39, of Kensington, London, and Stacey Hayward, 33, of Billericay, Essex.
