A teenager caught with thousands of pounds worth of heroin in his flat has been told he could face up to nine years in prison.

Sean Daniel Fitzpatrick of Spectrum Apartments in Douglas appeared before magistrates at Douglas Courthouse via a live video link.

Prosecutor Rebecca Cubbon told the hearing police raided the 18 year old’s home just before 7.30am on May 6 and found 42.1 grammes of the class A drug split into 14 wraps.

The court heard the drugs had a street value of between £5,000 and £10,000 depending on their purity when sold.

Fitzpatrick admitted one count of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply them, and magistrates said the case was too serious to be sentenced by a summary court – adding sentencing guidelines suggested a jail term of between seven and nine years.

They remanded him in custody and committed him to the Court of General Gaol Delivery where he’ll be sentenced on May 18.
