Douglas man in court after police find £36k of drugs

47-year-old also charged with possessing criminal cash

A Douglas man will appear in court again in September over allegations he had class A, B and C drugs and tens of thousands of pounds in cash.

Forty-seven-year-old Mark Glassey of Drury Terrace appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.

He’s indicated no plea to possessing cocaine, amphetamine, cannabis and diazepam with intent to supply, as well as possessing more than £59,000 in criminal cash.

Prosecution advocate Roger Kane told the hearing police are said to have found the drugs during raids on Mr Glassey’s home and work addresses.

The court heard officers found £36,000 worth of drugs as well as a collection of watches worth up to £200,000.

Heat-sealed banknotes were also discovered during searches and a computer was seized from Discount Carpets.

Magistrates granted bail in the sum of £10,000, with a condition Mr Glassey reports to police headquarters each day.

He’s next due to appear in court on 23 September for committal to the Court of General Gaol Delivery.
