A Stowmarket cannabis dealer caught in a drugs raid is to be sentenced at crown court after pleading guilty to two offences.

Jordan Coult, of Union Street West, admitted producing the Class B drug and possession with intent to supply cannabis, when he appeared before Ipswich magistrates.

The 23-year-old’s home was raided by police who executed a search warrant on July 28.

Prosecutor Colette Harper said during the raid 21 cannabis plants were found in the loft space of the premises.

An officer had said if all the plants survived the yield would have an estimated value between more than £3,000 and £17,640.

Mark Holt, representing Coult, said it was impossible to put a specific value on the cannabis as no one could tell how many plants would thrive.

The case was adjourned for sentencing and sent to Ipswich Crown Court where a date will be fixed. A pre-sentence report on Coult was ordered to be prepared.
