Elliott Humphreys admitted supplying cocaine

Elliott Humphreys also pleaded guilty to possessing almost £10,000 of criminal cash.

Humphreys of Cockshutt Road, Oakengates, appeared before Shrewsbury Crown Court on Monday to answer to a string of offences.

He is was charged with two counts of possession of the class A and B drugs, and possession of class A and B drugs, cocaine and cannabis, with intent to supply.

He was further charged with possessing £1,140 and £571 of criminal cash in October last year.

Another two charges concerned the supply of class A and B drugs, along with possessing £8,510 of criminal cash.

The 21-year-old went on to admit all nine charges.

Mr Peter Smith, defending, asked for an adjournment of six weeks for pre-sentence and medical report to be prepared.

Mr Smith said his client had been advised a prison term was inevitable.


He said Humphreys had suffered with a difficult up-bringing and suffered with anxiety and depression, for which he was currently taking medication for.

He went on to say that all such factors needed to be brought back to the court before a sentence was handed down.

Mr Smith added: “He is a young man with difficulties.”

Judge Peter Barrie granted Humphries bail and said he would be sentenced in Shrewsbury the week starting March 19.
