Lithuanian woman on heroin charge

By Alan Erwin

A Lithuanian woman has been remanded in custody charged in connection with heroin trading in Belfast.

Inesa Poyarkova is accused of possessing class A drugs and being concerned in their supply.

The 23-year-old, of no fixed address, appeared before Belfast Magistrates Court after being arrested in the city.

Police detained her on Tuesday as part of a wider investigation into the availability and supply of heroin in the greater Belfast area.

She is the seventh person to be charged within the last month.

Poyarkova's lawyer revealed her client arrived in Northern Ireland from Lithuania around three weeks ago. Poyarkova will appear again by video-link next month.
