Teen caught with heroin to be sentenced next month

Eighteen-year-old pleads guilty to possession of class A drug

A teenager from Douglas will be sentenced next month after more than 420 grammes of heroin was found in his flat.

Sean Daniel Fitzpatrick of Spectrum Apartments appeared via a live video link before Deemster Cook at the Court of General Gaol Delivery.

At a hearing before magistrates last week, the 18-year-old pleaded guilty to possessing between £5,000 and £10,000 worth of the class A drug with intent to supply it.

There was no bail application and Deemster Cook remanded him in custody to appear again for sentencing on 17 June.
