A homeless man has admitted drug dealing in Exeter and joyriding in a car which was stolen from Honiton.

Ashley Brennan, aged 24, formerly of Marine Crescent, Seaton, admitted possession of heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court by video link from the city’s jail.

He was caught with one gram of crack cocaine and 1.35 grams of heroin in Exeter on February 23 this year.

He went on to take a Vauxhall Astra car on October 9 after someone else stole the keys in a burglary at a house in New Street, Honiton.

Brennan admitted handling stolen goods and taking a vehicle without authority.

Shaun Boyd, aged 23, of West Street, Bridgwater, will plead guilty to the October 9 offences when the case returns for sentence on November 24.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, remanded Brennan in custody and released Boyd on bail with a condition not to enter Honiton.
