User pleads guilty to possessing the drug

A Douglas man's appeared in court charged with cannabis possession.

Twenty-seven-year-old Wesley Milson Jenkins, of Vicarage Mews, pleaded guilty to the offence at Douglas courthouse earlier.

Officers discovered two small parcels and a partly-smoked joint when they pulled Jenkins over for driving with illegal number plates on 29 January.

The drugs had a street value of under £10.

Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes gave Jenkins full credit for his co-operation and early guilty plea.

He's been fined £500 and ordered to pay £125 in costs.
