Frampton man stands trial for drug and firearm offences
By Court reporter | 13th August 2021
A 50 year old Fretherne man is to stand jury trial accused of cannabis production and possession of a disguised shotgun.
At Cheltenham Magistrates Court on July 29th, Christopher Meredith, of Eventide, Fretherne, was granted unconditional bail pending a first appearance at Gloucester Crown Court on Aug 19.
He is charged that at Frampton on Severn on 14th September last year he had a shotgun disguised as another object.
He is also charged with being concerned in the production of cannabis, a Class B drug, at Frampton on the same date.
Because the shotgun charge can only be dealt with by a Crown Court the magistrates committed him for trial on both alleged offences.
