Share this page

Wednesday 24 July 2013

Nathan Peter John Bishop, a 21 year old local man, appeared before the Guernsey Royal Court on Tuesday 23 July 2013. Bishop pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of the Class B controlled drug Cannabis Resin and was sentenced to three years imprisonment.

The total quantity of Cannabis Resin, approximately two kilos in weight, would have had a potential local resale value of between £39,720 and £49,650.

On 27 November 2012, as part of a drug trafficking investigation by the Guernsey Border Agency, Bishop was arrested at a disused vinery in St Saviours. On arrest Bishop was holding a rectangular paint pot containing some of the Cannabis Resin. During a search of Bishop's vehicle the remainder of the Cannabis Resin was found within his tool box.

In interview Bishop admitted his guilt and stated that he was going to store the drugs he was carrying on behalf of another. Bishop stated that the remaining drugs found in his vehicle were for onward sale.

Bishop's sentence is to run from the date of his arrest.
