A man has changed his plea in relation to drug-related charges.
Thomas Gabriel yesterday amended a previous not guilty plea to guilty on a charge of possession of controlled substance – cocaine, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to supply another.
Gabriel was arrested after officers executed a search warrant on his residence at Darling Road on April 27, 2012.
During the search, officers of the Drug Unit recovered 51 foil-wrapped packages on a dresser which contained a white substance later identified as cocaine. Officers also recovered $707.03 in cash on the premises and a kitchen scale.
Gabriel was cautioned, arrested and charged. He has been out on bail since then. He will return to court on December 17, 2012.
