A woman from Glen Maye who was found with £15 worth of ecstasy in her car has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service.

36-year-old Nicola Waterworth was stopped by police on Patrick Road on April 16th - they found three tablets enclosed in the coin drawer. 
 
Amphetamine, valued at £10, was also found in her possession when she was taken to Police Headquarters. 
 
At Douglas Courthouse this week her advocate told the court it was an "extremely low quantity" of both substances and they were for personal use only. 
 
He said the offences had brought "shame and embarrassment" on her and urged the court to take into account her two early guilty pleas. 
 
Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes ordered Waterworth to carry out the unpaid work over the next year and pay £125 in prosecution costs - the drugs will now be destroyed.
