A pair of brothers have pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of heroin.

A pair of brothers have pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of heroin.

Romario Robinson, 20, and Ricardo Robinson, 18, were arrested in Haverhill on August 30 last year on suspicion of possession of heroin.

They both appeared in Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, January 20 charged with possession of a quantity of class A drugs.

The pair, both currently living in south London of no fixed abode, had been visiting a property in Haverhill when the police arrived.

The court heard that the police had been called to the property in response to an incident and that, upon their arrival, they found there were between 30 and 40 people outside making a disturbance.

Jane Foster, prosecuting, told the court that officers entered and found Ricardo Robinson in one of the bedrooms.

After a search, the court heard that 20 wraps of heroin were found in a drawer next to the bed that Mr Robinson had been sleeping in.

The wraps had been hidden inside a cigarette packet.

A forensic examination confirmed the wraps contained heroin and that the total value of the drugs present amounted to less than £100.

The court also heard that the wraps were found to have both Ricardo and Romario’s fingerprints on them.

Both brothers were arrested but denied any knowledge of the drugs.

“They have both failed to account for the presence of their finger prints on the drugs,” Mrs Foster told the court.

Chairman of the bench, Bernard Turner, adjourned the trial until May 1 at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court.

Unconditional bail was granted to both brothers.
