Liverpool man caught with 185 grams of Ketamine

Police say drug had a street value of between £7,420 and £9,275

A Liverpool man will be sentenced next month after being caught with thousands of pounds worth of Ketamine.

Thomas Anthony Fitzsimmons, of Woodsorrel Road, appeared at Douglas Courthouse where he admitted having the Class B drug with intent to supply.

The 30-year-old also entered guilty pleas to possession of cannabis and causing damage to property.

Police were called to the Mannin Hotel, in Douglas, just before 5am on 5 March after Fitzsimmons was seen damaging a door.

When they arrived he was described as being in a ‘state’ and told officers he’d taken ‘a lot of Ket’.

Officers searched his hotel room and recovered more than 185 grams of Ketamine with a street value of between £7,420 and £9,275; they also found £10 worth of cannabis.

Fitzsimmons will be sentenced at the Court of General Gaol Delivery on 28 April – there was no application for bail and he was remanded at the Isle of Man Prison.
