Man admits removing £50k in criminal cash


A 25-year-old man has admitted a series of drug offences, including offering to supply cannabis, and removing more than £53,000 of criminal cash.

Benjamin Robert Hagin appeared before Royal Court last Friday where he entered guilty pleas to all 13 charges against him.

He is facing six counts of removing criminal property - namely £53,970 in cash - from the island between December 2018 and April 2019.

He was also charged with offering to supply cannabis resin to others on five separate occasions in March and April 2019.

He was granted bail, and has been asked to wear an electronic tag until his sentencing on 4 August 2020.

Hagin will appear before the Superior Number, a panel that only assembles for the most serious of cases.
