A man was been warned he faces a possible prison sentence after admitting smuggling illegal drugs into HMP Highpoint in Stradishall.

Virgilio Melim, 47, appeared on Friday at Ipswich Crown Court where he pleaded guilty to two offences of taking a prohibited article into a prison.

The court heard that Melim, of Clipstone Street, London, had been caught with a quantity of cannabis in January.

The judge ordered the preparation of a pre sentence report by the Probation Service before sentencing,

Judge David Goodin told Melim that he would be granted bail until he returns to court to be sentenced next month.

Judge Goodin warned Melim: “You must understand that taking drugs into prison is ordinarily followed by custody. It is very much in the mind of the court.”
