A 23-year-old Douglas man has admitted possessing cocaine and two counts of possessing cannabis.

Jake James Bostock is already subject to a probation order, imposed in September last year for benefit fraud.

Sentencing for the drug offences was adjourned until July 7 while an update is received from probation services.

Prosecuting advocate Chrissie Hunt told the court how Bostock, who lives at Clarence Terrace, was found in possession of one gram of cocaine, valued by police at £100, and 3.2 grams of cannabis, valued at £66, on June 8.

He was also found in possession of 9.2 grams of cannabis, valued by police at £276, on August 13 last year.

Defence advocate Stephen Wood asked for an update from probation services regarding his progress with the probation order.

Mr Wood said that further inquiries were taking place into possible other matters.

Bail continues in the sum of £500 with conditions to live at his home address and to contact probation services.
