Man charged after Isle of Man cocaine seizure

A man has been charged after police discovered cocaine with a street value of more than £5,000 in the Isle of Man.

The 29-year-old was arrested at an address in Peel on Tuesday.

He is due to appear at Douglas courthouse charged with possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply, and possessing a class C drug.

Insp Will Campbell said: "Five thousand three hundred pounds of controlled drugs, in a local context, is a significant amount".

He added: "I am delighted that we have prevented it from reaching its intended market and I hope this gives a clear message to those who deal drugs in the west of the island that we are actively targeting them."
