試圖攜帶5千英鎊犯罪現金登上渡輪的男子被判入獄

一名男子在馬恩島輪渡碼頭被發現在口袋裡用鬆緊帶捆綁着5495英鎊的犯罪現金,已被監禁。

他被判處兩個月的監禁,並在五年內禁止上島。

道格拉斯法院聽取了來自朗科恩山毛櫸路的戴維斯如何被人看到在道格拉斯海濱大道的Bordellos夜總會外與另一名男子有可疑的舉動,然後他來到了海上碼頭。

當被詢問時,他聲稱自己周日在皇宮酒店和賭場的老虎機上贏了2000英鎊,並補充說。"我以為我不需要申報低於10,000英鎊的東西"。

在任何情況下,只有會員被允許在贏得超過1500英鎊後繼續遊戲,而戴維斯不是一個會員。

他後來承認試圖取出犯罪現金,並聲稱他是在壓力下這樣做的,以便償還一筆毒品債務。

他的辯護律師說,他 "做出了一些錯誤的決定",並且在心理健康方面存在問題。

法院聽說,雖然可以考慮社區令,但他不是島上的居民,而且有可能被排除在島上,這使得社區令難以執行。

裁判長格雷姆-庫克說,他來到島上的唯一目的是將犯罪所得帶回英國,並向警方撒謊,"試圖讓自己擺脫困境"。


A man found with £5,495 in criminal cash tied up with an elastic band in his pocket at the Isle of Man ferry terminal has been jailed.

He was sentenced to two months in prison and banned from the island for five years.

Douglas Courthouse heard how Davies, from Beech Road in Runcorn, was seen by someone acting suspiciously with another man outside Bordellos night club on Douglas Promenade, before making his way to the Sea Terminal.

When questioned he claimed he had won £2,000 on slot machines at the Palace Hotel and Casino on Sunday, adding: "I thought I didn't have to declare anything under £10,000."

In any case only members were allowed to keep playing after winning more than £1,500, and Davies was not a member.

He later admitted attempting to remove criminal cash, and claimed he had been pressured to do so in order to pay off a drug debt.

His defence advocate said he had "made some poor decisions" and had problems with his mental health.

The court heard although a community order may have been considered, the fact he was not an island resident and was likely to be excluded from the island made that difficult.

Deemster Greame Cook said he came to the island for the sole purpose of taking criminal money back to the UK and had lied to police to "try and remove yourself from the difficult position" he was in.
