Thu, 23 Jan 2020

Three people have appeared in court facing charges for producing, possessing and supplying drugs, including 154g of heroin.


45-year-old Tracy Sloan, 39-year-old Jaine Elizabeth Beech, both from Liverpool, and 31-year-old John Slater of Onchan stood before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes on Tuesday at Douglas Courthouse.


The prosecution stated that police raided Mr Slater's home after following Ms Sloan and Ms Beech from leaving the Sea Terminal on 16th January.


On entering the property, officers found Mr Slater with a large amount of money and two packages covered in slime in the kitchen - believed to have been removed from bodily orifices.


Both packages are being tested in the UK for forensic examination and the results are expected to be produced in eight weeks.


Ms Hughes remanded all of the accused in custody until 4th February for another court appearance.
