November sentence for teen caught with £1800 of cannabis

Police recover 93 grams of drug from 19-year-old's property

A teenager from Douglas will be sentenced in November after being caught with cannabis worth more than £1800.

Jake Sloane, of Empress Drive, admitted being concerned in the supply of the Class B drug between 1 February and 13 April this year.

The 19-year-old also pleaded guilty to possessing the substance with the intention of supplying it on 12 April during an appearance at Douglas Courthouse.

The court heard police had searched his former home, on Peel Road, and found a cardboard box containing 93.8 grams of cannabis bush as well as a set of scales and bags.

A social enquiry report has been requested before Sloane is sentenced on 2 November; he’s been bailed until that date.
