The drug dealer was caught when he posted marijuana to a friend – and wrote a return to the sender’s address on the envelope


A friend of the DOPEY drug dealer was arrested when he posted marijuana – and wrote a return to the sender’s address on the envelope.

Daniel Mann dropped the package at the post office but it had such a pungent smell that the staff immediately alerted the police.

They found 27oz marijuana worth around £ 6,000 inside – and Mann’s mother’s address in the envelope.

28 ounces of marijuana were found during a raid on the home

Sentencing him, Judge Robert Adams said: “This is a sophisticated crime.

“It had the smell of marijuana and your mother’s address on it. It was very easy to find out who the sender was.”

Prosecutor Neil Pallister told Newcastle Crown Court earlier this week: “Police received a phone call from staff that a man had delivered a suspicious package for the posting and that it had a marijuana smell.

“The police were present and it was clear that the package left by the defendant contained two large marijuana bags.”

The total value of drugs found in the South Gosforth Post Office and at her mum’s home last January was £ 12,440.

Mr Pallister said: “This is more than personal use for anyone with a heavy marijuana habit.” Police also recovered 5,120 pounds of cash.

Mann, 42, Lough Newcastle, pleaded guilty to supplying marijuana.

He was sentenced to nine months in jail, 18 months suspended, six months curfew and 100 hours without pay.

Tony Davis, defending, said Mann was living in seclusion and trying to pass marijuana to a friend.

He said: “The post office smelled of the package.”

The court heard that Mann was a registered caregiver for his friend.

She is helping her disabled mother and is said to be in remorse.
