Exmouth man admits possession of ecstasy tablets

PUBLISHED: 11:46 12 June 2017 | UPDATED: 11:46 12 June 2017


A 22-year-old man from Exmouth has admitted having 50 ecstasy tablets with intent to supply them to others.

Stephen Collins, of Featherstone Road, pleaded guilty to having been in possession of the tablets with intent on November 16 last year.

Further allegations of being concerned in the supply of ecstasy and ketamine were not proceeded with because they form part of the background to the offence he has admitted.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, adjourned his sentence at Exeter Crown Court in order for a probation report to be prepared, and released Collins on bail.

Miss Kelly Scrivener, defending, told the court Collins accepts he had 50 tablets but messages on his mobile phone show he was being threatened into taking part in drug dealing. She said he played a lesser role in it.
