A 28-year-old facing charges of possession with intent to supply heroin, cocaine and cannabis was unable to appear before Grantham magistrates’ because he is still in prison.

Stuart Wild, defending, explained that because of immigration reasons Sebastion Joaoa was still in HMP Wandsworth. He had been expected to be released before now.

Joaoa was due to face charges of possessing with intent to supply class A drugs heroin and cocaine and class B drug cannabis on August 15 last year at Harlaxton Road.

The case was adjourned to be heard on June 23.
