Chester man jailed after sending drugs though the post

Tue, 22 Sep 2015

A Chester man whose "misguided sense of friendship" saw him send drugs through the post has been told he's made a "terrible mistake".

30-year-old David Morris has been jailed for 11 months after pleading guilty to being unlawfully concerned in the production of cannabis.

He posted two parcels containing the Class B drug to an address in Onchan on July 14th - one of them was intercepted at the Isle of Man Post Office.

It contained 246g of cannabis skunk which had a street value of £1,736 - police arrested Morris when he travelled to the Island two days later.

Morris's advocate told the court he accepted he'd done wrong but had gained nothing from it adding as a result he'd missed the birth of his child.

Sentencing him Deemster Montgomerie told him "You've paid a heavy price for doing a favour for a friend however it was self-inflicted. Serve your time and learn your lesson".

He also imposed an exclusion order on Morris banning him from the Island for five years.
