A Polish man who told police he thought heroin and cannabis were legal on the Isle of Man after being caught with drugs will be sentenced next month.

32-year-old Tomasz Pasternak was stopped by police on Woodbourne Road in Douglas on December 18th last year.

They followed his car and after noticing he was "fidgeting with his clothing" stopped and searched him - they found 3.5 grams of heroin, 1 gram of cocaine and 0.2 grams of cannabis bush.

At Douglas Courthouse yesterday he pleaded guilty to three charges of unlawful possession of the drugs.

A social enquiry report has been requested before he's sentenced on April 12th - Pasternak has been bailed until then.
