A TEENAGER admitted that £22,000 worth of drugs found during a police raid belonged to him.

Phoenix Clark admitted three counts of possessing drugs with intent to supply when he appeared at South Cumbria Magistrates' Court.

He was hauled before magistrates after officers carried out a raid in a home in Kendal on November 11.

Police found large quantities of cocaine and cannabis inn the property in Sandylands Road.

During the raid, the 18-year-old defendant admitted to police there was a bag containing drugs in the loft.

The amount of cannabis recovered had an estimated value of £12,000 and the cocaine £10,000.

Clark is due to be sentenced for the offences at Carlisle Crown Court on December 10.

Chris Evans, defending, urged the court to grant Clark bail ahead of the court appearance, emphasising how he helped police during the raid.

"It would have been difficult to attribute the drugs to him," Mr Evans said.

"He cooperated with the police in the extreme."

Magistrates granted Clark bail with conditions ahead of sentencing but warned he could face three years in prison for the offences.

Family members sat at the back of the court jumped up in jubilation when the defendant was granted bail.
