The charges follow a joint investigation into a County Lines drug supply network by Avon and Somerset Police’s Op Remedy team and the Metropolitan Police.

Operation Remedy is a co-ordinated effort launched in April 2019 to improve force performance in relation to residential burglary, knife crime and the illegal supply of controlled drugs.

All three were remanded in custody until the next hearing on Wednesday 6 January at Bristol Crown Court.
