Guilty plea from man who used benefits to buy cannabis

Wed, 04 May 2016


A Douglas man who spent his benefit money on buying cannabis to sell to other drug users will be sentenced in June.
 
Police raided 20-year-old Paul Galbraith's home on Kingswood Grove on April 1st - they found cannabis in a glass jar behind the sofa, in a coffee jar and in a plastic bag. 
 
The drug, which weighed just under 70 grams, had a street value of £1,354. 
 
At Douglas Courthouse yesterday he admitted possession of the Class B substance with intent to supply. 
 
His advocate told the court that Galbraith had used cannabis for some time and had paid a dealer £500 for around 80 grams of the drug. 
 
Social enquiry reports have been requested before he's sentenced on June 14th.
