Gibraltar la linea e
CUFFED: Lowe was held in Gibraltar

A BRITISH soldier and football coach has pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and intent to supply in Gibraltar.

Garry Lowe, 34, a former Corporal in the Royal Gibraltar Regiment, was cuffed with 56 grams of the class-A drug, with a street value of £3000.

Lowe is known for managing several of the Rock’s football teams, and helped to found Premier Division side Gibraltar Phoenix.

He later took up coaching responsibilities at Red Imps and Bruno’s Magpies.

After his initial arrest in February outside a ‘military establishment’ police also used ‘specialised sniffer dogs’ to search two locations.

Lowe was discharged from the regiment at his own request, before his court appearance on Thursday.

He has now been remanded in custody and the case will be moved to the Supreme Court, but has been adjourned until May 30.
