A NORTHAMPTONSHIRE man denies dealing crack cocaine and heroin in Swindon.

Dion Greaves, 23, of Harrison Road, Lower Harlestone, pleaded not guilty to being concerned in the supply of crack cocaine, nine counts of supplying a class A drug, and possession of cannabis.

The charges relate to a five month period between April 24 and September 9.

Appearing before Swindon Magistrates’ Court this morning wearing a grey tracksuit, Greaves spoke only to confirm his name, address, date of birth and nationality.

He was remanded in custody for a plea and trial preparation hearing at Swindon Crown Court on Friday, November 8.

As he was taken from the dock he appeared to blow a kiss towards the public gallery and said “write to me”.

Greaves' court appearance came in the week that more than 50 officers raided homes across Swindon in a blitz on County Lines drug dealing.
