THE 20th person to be arrested in an undercover police operation set up to catch drug dealers in Fenland appeared in court this week.

Glen Hague admitted he supplied two wraps of heroin to an undercover police officer in Wisbech.

He also admitted that he offered to supply the officer code named "Billy Gadd" with half a gram of heroin, and was concerned in supplying the officer with six more wraps of the class A drug.

"Operation Antilla started last year, in relation to the supply of drugs in the Wisbech area," prosecutor Andrew Williams told Fenland magistrates on Wednesday.

"Test purchase officers were employed to befriend drug users."

On April 20 Hague gave "Billy" his phone number and said he could get him drugs. A week later Hague offered to supply the officer with heroin, and on May 11 he supplied him with two wraps, said Mr Williams.

The officer phoned Hague on May 27, and was supplied with six wraps after Hague introduced him to his supplier.

Solicitor Martin Newton said Hague was a family man, with two children and a stable address.

Hague was committed for sentence at Cambridge Crown Court and remanded in custody.

He denied an allegation of assaulting Karen Goodger in 2004, and that case was adjourned for four weeks. He was fined £50 after admitting failing to attend court on an earlier date, but served one day's detention in lieu of payment.
