London rapper Digga D’s drug case adjourned following ‘police raid’ near Lincoln





A judge today adjourned a drugs case faced by London rapper Digga D, after he was allegedly arrested in a police raid near Lincoln.

The 23-year-old West London drill artist - real name Rhys Angelo Emile Herbert - was at an address in Bracebridge Heath, Lincoln, when the alleged raid took place.

The raid is said to have occurred in the early hours of February 21 while Digga D was in the middle of an Instagram Live stream.

Mr Herbert appeared at Lincoln Magistrates Court on February 22 where he was charged with a “being concerned in the supply of cannabis and "fraudulent evasion of the prohibition of the importation.”

His case was listed for a plea and trial preparation hearing at Lincoln Crown Court today (Monday).

But the court heard a video-link from the prison where Mr Herbert has been remanded was not available until the end of April and he could not be produced in person.

An application is expected to be made to transfer Mr Herbert's case to a London court.

Mr Herbert, whose address was given to the court as Lonsdale Road, London, was represented by James Scobie KC.

The prosecution were represented by Lauren Sales.

Recorder Justin Wigoder adjourned the case for a further hearing at Lincoln Crown Court on April 3 and Mr Herbert remains remanded into custody.
