100 after police find cannabis in his car
James Jeffries, 27, of Waterloo Road, Havant, was caught when police smelled the class B drug and searched his car in Sadlers Walk, Emsworth.
Giles Fletcher, prosecuting at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court, said: ‘The defendant was seen by the police to be parked in his vehicle close to a children’s playground.
Mr Fletcher added: ‘Everything was seized from the defendant and I understand in interview he made a statement in which he stated the drugs in the car were his for personal use. He said they were bagged up by him to regulate how much he uses.’
The court heard in Jeffries’ defence that the cannabis seized was worth 30, that it was for his personal use and that it was 9pm on October 3 when the incident happened.
He was given a six month conditional discharge and ordered to pay 85 in court costs and 15 to a fund for victims of crime. An order was made for the drugs to be forfeited and destroyed.
