A DRUG user caught with more than three-quarters of a kilo of cannabis has appeared in court.
Lee Walsh, of Broadway Lane, South Cerney, has been charged with possession of 759grams of the class B drug worth £1,300, with intent to supply.
However, the 28-year-old claims he was looking after the drug and was not a dealer.
He has pleaded guilty to having 759grams of cannabis with intent on April 26, 2012, and possession of 614 tablets of diazepam, a Class C drug.
The Crown Prosecution Service has said it does not accept Walsh's claims that he was not involved in supplying the drug.
Judge Jamie Tabor said the dispute about Walsh's role would be decided at a trial of issue to be held in April before he is sentenced.
He was granted bail.
