Pair admit smuggling cocaine into Jersey


Two men from Liverpool have admitted smuggling cocaine into Jersey in August.

Craig Patrick Yeowart (38) and Darren Paul Maidment (36) pleaded guilty to a single charge of being "knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of the prohibition of the goods" when they appeared in the Royal Court on Friday.

The offence took place at the Elizabeth Terminal at the Harbour on 7 August.

Both men were remanded in custody to 3 February 2022 when they will be sentenced by the Superior Number of the Court, which only sits for the most serious cases.
