Crabtree was arrested and interviewed by police.
Mrs Houghton said Crabtree told police: “The white powder was for his personal use which he had bought”.
Crabtree said he would purchase eight grams of cannabis for £150 and then sell it on to others making a profit.
Magistrates heard how Crabtree would purchase 16 ounces on cannabis, split it into packs, and sell it on for £12.50.
He told police he had only been doing it for a month and that the “substantial” amount of cash found at his home was from drug dealing and the sale of a car.
“This is a commercial dealer who earns money,” added Mrs Houghton.
Magistrates committed Crabtree to Norwich Crown Court for sentencing at a later date.
