Police stopped a vehicle at 5am in Boston Road, Kirton, because they were concerned about its speed – but then they smelled cannabis inside the car.

Paul Wood, prosecuting, officers found a small amount of cannabis inside a tobacco pouch belonging Francesio Williams.

Williams told police the cannabis was for his own use and he had bought it for £25.

Rachel Stevens, mitigating, said Williams’ girlfriend disapproved of him using the drug, which is why he had his personal supply in the car.

Williams (27), of Fenside Road, Boston, was conditonally discharged for a year and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge by magistrates sitting at Boston on Thursday.
