Guilty pleas from prisoner who smuggled drugs and tobacco

A prisoner has admitted smuggling drugs and smoking materials into the Jurby lock-up after being handed a custodial sentence.

32-year-old Carl Joseph Bridson pleaded guilty to introducing articles to the prison, and possession of a controlled drug, during an appearance at Douglas Courthouse on Tuesday. 

Magistrates sentenced Bridson to a period of custody on January 5th - later that day he was checked in to the Isle of Man Prison. 

However prison officers became suspicious after noting a smell of cannabis coming from his cell - a full search of both the room and Bridson was carried out.

Staff found tobacco, a quantity of cannabis bush, four hand rolled cigarettes and a lighter flint. 

Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes adjourned the case until February 14th when a decision will be made on where he will be sentenced - he's been remanded until that date.
