A court’s heard police found packages of heroin worth thousands of pounds soaked in body fluids at a house in Onchan.

31 year old John Slater of Ashley Park appeared alongside Liverpool women 39 year old Jaine Elizabeth Beech of Hahnemann Road and 45 year old Tracy Solan of Andrews Street before High Bailiff Jayne Hughes at Douglas Courthouse.

None have yet entered plea to charges of producing the class A drug and unlawfully supplying it at Mr Slater’s home on January 16.

Prosecutor Hazel Carroon said police raided the house and discovered two packages, both thought to have been recently removed from bodily orifices.

One contained 154 grammes of heroin.

Mrs Hughes remanded all three in custody to appear in court again on February 4.
