Drug charges man pleads guilty to handling stolen goods

Thu, 19 Feb 2015

A Douglas man who's remanded in prison on drugs charges has pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods.

41-year-old John Gallop appeared at Douglas Courthouse earlier this week where he pleaded guilty to being in possession of a stolen iPod.

Police visited him at his home last year, in relation to other charges he's facing, when they found the device which had been stolen in a burglary in October. 

Gallop has previously pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis, being unlawfully concerned in the production of diazepam and possessing the drug with intent to supply it from December.

All matters will now be dealt with together at the Court of General Gaol Delivery where committal proceedings are due to take place on March 6th. 

A fourth charge of possessing heroin with intent to supply it has been denied by Gallop - a trial date for this will be confirmed in due course.

There was no application for bail and he was further remanded at the Isle of Man Prison.
