Committed to Court of General Gaol Delivery
A man from Ramsey has been committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery over cocaine-dealing allegations.
Colin Sidney Moughtin, of Close Caarjys, appeared before magistrates at Douglas Courthouse this week.
He admitted possessing cannabis, but denied possessing cocaine with intent to supply the class A drug.
Barry Swain, prosecuting, said police executed a search warrant at Moughtin’s house at 9.40am on 18 October last year.
When they searched the property, officers discovered what prosecution advocate Barry Swain said was a significant amount of cocaine.
They also found 3.2 grammes of cannabis, worth £18.27, which Moughtin admitted was his.
Defence advocate David Reynolds said the 37-year-old was ill and used the class B drug regularly to relieve chronic pain.
Moughtin was fined £25 and ordered to pay £25 prosecution costs, and will appear again on 30 April when he’ll be committed to the Court of General Gaol Delivery to face the cocaine charge.
