A local man has been sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid community work after cannabis worth £1,180 was found at his home.
Jake Macmichael, 19, of Varyl Begg Estate, who pleaded Guilty to Possession and Possession with Intent to Supply a Controlled Class B Drug, was sentenced at the Magistrates’ Court today.
The sentence follows a search warrant that was executed at his home at around 715am on Thursday September 2 this year.
The search was led by the Royal Gibraltar Police’s Drug Squad and Criminal Investigation Department detectives, together with a specialist Drug Detection Dog from HM Customs Flexible Anti-Smuggling Team.
During the search, multiple slabs of Cannabis Resin were found hidden within the lining of a sofa, which Macmichael said belonged to him.
