Daniel Edward Lilley, a 32 year old local man, appeared before the Guernsey Royal Court having pleaded guilty to being in possession of 1691.94 grams of the Class B controlled drug, Cannabis Resin with the intent to supply it to another. Lilley was sentenced to 3 years imprisonment.
On 7 March 2013, as part of a drug trafficking investigation by the Guernsey Border Agency, Lilley was arrested upon his arrival at a local public house on a bicycle. On arrest, Lilley was found to be in possession of two small amounts of Cannabis Resin, and approximately £1,000 in cash.
A search was then conducted of the property he had previously been seen to leave on his bicycle immediately prior to being arrested. Within a block built shed in the rear garden, Guernsey Border Agency Officers found a black holdall, which contained Lilley's passport, items of his clothing and seven 9 ounce bars of Cannabis Resin. When interviewed under caution Lilley maintained a no comment stance.
The total quantity of Cannabis in this case would have had a potential local resale value of between £33,832 and £42,291.
Lilley's sentence is due to run from the date of his arrest.
