Rotherham man faces £1.3m drug plot charge

A 35-year-old man from Rotherham has been charged with conspiracy to supply Class B drugs after police seized £1.3 million worth of amphetamine.

Paul Shaw, of Harrop Garden Flats, Swinton was arrested and charged on Friday (30) after the car he was travelling in was pulled over by police on the M25 motorway, in Surrey.

Another man, Gary Kurlej (39), of Bournemouth, was also arrested and the pair appeared at Guildford Magistrates Court yesterday (3).

Magistrates remanded both Shaw and Kurlej in custody.

They will appear at Guildford Crown Court on July 16.

The pair were arrested after Surrey Police stopped a car at junction 11 of the M25 at 11.30am on Friday.

A police spokeswoman said that around 130kg of amphetamine was seized.
