TWO people charged as part of an alleged ecstasy dealing ring in Tamworth are set to fight the allegations in court.
Tamworth's Sophie Langenbaker and Shawn William Foxe will defend the charges against them at hearings later this year.
The pair were both arrested by police from Strike Force Heyward - an operation led by the Oxley Target Action Group to target the party drug scene in and around licensed premises in Tamworth.
In Tamworth Local Court this week, Langenbaker's solicitor asked for a hearing date for both charges.
The 21-year-old is accused of supplying a prohibited drug that was less than the indictable quantity; as well as participating in a criminal group by contributing to criminal activity.
Magistrate Julie Soars set the case down for hearing in mid-May.
Langenbaker remains on conditional bail.
Foxe, 31, has pleaded guilty to charges of supplying a prohibited drug that's less than an indictable quantity; possessing a prohibited drug; and another of possessing or using a prohibited weapon without a permit.
In court, Legal Aid solicitor Wendy McAuliffe said her client maintained his pleas of not guilty to charges of dealing with the suspected proceeds of crime; as well as one count of possessing a prohibited drug.
Ms Soars set the case down for hearing in May. Foxe remains on conditional bail.
As part of the Strike Force Heyward operation, 12 people are facing a combined 64 offences, including ongoing supply and large commercial supply of MDMA, or ecstasy, as it's commonly known.
Several of the accused remain before the court.
