A man from Exmouth who was found with £1,500 cash has admitted dealing in Class A drugs, cocaine and ecstasy.

Harry Pritchard, aged 25, of Ashleigh Road, Withycombe Raleigh, appeared at Exeter Crown Court, where he admitted possession of 27.83 grams of cocaine and 5.39 grams of MDMA, also known as ecstasy, with intent to supply.

He also admitted possession of £1,500 cash as criminal property and personal possession of cannabis when he appeared before Exeter Crown Court.

Judge Timothy Rose told the court he was adjourning sentencing Pritchard while a probation pre-sentence report is prepared.

Miss Caroline Bolt, prosecuting, told Exeter Crown Court how the police have accepted Pritchard’s basis of plea, in which he said he was pressurised into selling drugs.
