Prison handshake lands man in court

Mon, 29 Jun 2015

A Pulrose man has pleaded guilty to trying to supply drugs into the Isle of Man Prison.

27-year-old Antony Lyons was spotted by a prison guard trying to pass the substances to a prisoner during a visit to the Jurby facility on March 22nd.

The guard had become suspicious about how long it was taking the two men to shake hands - a search recovered a package wrapped in cling film.

At Douglas Courthouse last week Lyons admitted to supplying the Class A drug diamorphine and the Class B drug cannabis resin.

Social enquiry reports have been requested - Lyons will be sentenced on August 21st.
