Guernsey man jailed for possessing ecstasy

A man has been jailed for eight years by Guernsey's Royal Court after pleading guilty to possessing with intent to supply Class A and B drugs.

Shaun Andrew Lesbirel, 35, was arrested in May and a search of his home and vehicles found 1,161 MDMA tablets, known as ecstasy, and 9.48g of resin.

He was sentenced to eight years for the ecstasy charge and 12 months for the cannabis resin, to run concurrently.

The drugs were said to have a value of between £17,615 and £23,470.

Lesbirel was still on parole following a previous sentence of the importation of a controlled drug.

In his summing up Judge Russell Finch said Lesbirel was driven by stupidity and greed.
