Tuesday 14 January 2014

Ciaran John William Winterflood a 22 year old local man appeared before the Guernsey Royal Court on Monday 13 January 2014. Winterflood pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply to another the Class A drug 6-monoacetylmorphine (131.6 grms) more commonly known as 6-MAM, an ester of morphine, the Class B drug Cannabis Resin (1.415 kgrm) and the Class B drug Amphetamine (86 grms).

Winterflood was sentenced to 9 years imprisonment.

The total quantity of Controlled Drugs would have had a potential local resale value of between £73,130.00 and £120,740.00.

On Wednesday 25th September 2013, as part of drug trafficking investigation the Guernsey Border Agency together with the Guernsey Police arrested Winterflood. He had been observed leaving a wooded area in Colborne Road carrying a rucksack. On seeing officers, Winterflood ran away and threw the rucksack into a nearby car park before being arrested. The rucksack was searched and found to contain the illegal substances.

Whilst summing up, Judge Finch said that Winterflood's story was inherently unlikely to a large degree and that people who look to make money from the drug trade are leeches on society.

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

6-monoacetylmorphine or 6-MAM is an ester of morphine specifically a mono-acetate giving the user the same effects as Heroin and would have been sold as Heroin.
