Douglas man admits having £7k of drugs

Twenty-five-year-old remanded in custody

A 25-year-old Douglas man has been warned he faces a lengthy prison sentence.

Ben Clark Owen of Belmont Terrace had already pleaded guilty to five drug-related charges.

Owen admits two counts of production of cannabis, one of possession of MDMA with intent to supply, one of possessing cannabis with intent to supply and one of possessing criminal property.

The drugs in his possession had a street value of more than £7,300.

He was arrested in May after police were called to Douglas Post Office sorting office following a report of two suspicious packages addressed to the defendant.

Deemster Alistair Montgomerie adjourned proceedings until November 21 for sentencing.

Owen has been remanded in custody until then.
