An Ipswich cannabis dealer had more than £3,000 cash hidden in a safe, a court has heard.

Eighteen-year-old Riley Clarke also had a “plethora” of bulk advertising text messages on his mobile phone offering to supply cannabis, Ipswich Crown Court was told.

Clarke, of Downing Close, Ipswich, has pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis and possession with intent to supply.

Matthew Bagnall, prosecuting, said that in addition to £3,520 cash found in a safe, police also discovered 71g of cannabis in Clarke’s possession.

Judge Emma Peters agreed to adjourn the case to allow the probation service to prepare a pre-sentence report on Clarke.
