Police Issue Cannabis Caution

Police light 2A St Mary’s resident has received a police cannabis caution.

The woman was stopped in Hugh Town late on Friday afternoon by PC Tracey Fuller.

PC Fuller has been covering police leave, and was acting on intelligence.

He retrieved an amount of the banned drug in a plant form, enough to fill half a mug. Police feel it was intended for personal use.

While some islanders have argued previously that dealing with small amounts of cannabis isn’t a good use of police time, Colin says his team are just upholding the law.

He says if they have information that people might have drugs, they have to investigate it.

But Colin says there’s nothing to suggest there’s an increase in the amount of use.
