Dean Hardy jailed over attempted drug import

An unemployed Guernsey man has been sentenced to six and a half years in prison for attempting to import 100g of synthetic cannabinoid by post.

Dean Hardy, 32, denied ordering the Class B drug from China. He claimed he had ordered bonsai plant fertiliser and was not aware of its real nature.

He was arrested after the parcel was intercepted and Guernsey Border Agency officers searched his home.

The Royal Court heard the powder had a street value of up to £53,000.
