Emmanuel Dube, a former semi-professional footballer found peddling cocaine, MDMA and Ketamine in Jesmond has walked free from court.

Newcastle Crown Court heard he had 66 MDMA tablets, 37 packs of cocaine, 38 packs of ketamine, and 45 packs of MDMA worth around £4,600. When stopped, Dube was also found with thousands of pounds in a Nike satchel, kept in the glove compartment of his car.

Despite pleading guilty to the possession of all three drugs with the intent of selling, the semi-professional footballer has been given a suspended prison sentence.

The footballer had travelled from Manchester to Newcastle to sell drugs and was stopped by an officer on Lonsdale Terrace who interpreted his actions as suspicious.

Judge David Gordon sentenced him to two years and suspended Dube for two years with 240 hours of unpaid work. Gordon also added that the evidence only shows Dube was involved for one day, however. 

The judge also exposed references who spoke highly of Dube, who is “hard-working, conscientious, and does charitable work with young people and others”.

Shada Mellor, who acted as Dube's defence, said he came to Newcastle on the pretence of a job offer and did not realise he was being asked to deliver drugs until he got here.
