A Gosberton man who has admitted drugs charges will be sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court.

Travis Frederick Mills (23), of Belchmire Line, admitted possession of cannabis with intent to supply, possession of MDMA and supplying cannabis in October last year, as well as possessing cannabis found in his shed in March this year.

Prosecuting, Dale Brownless said Mills had previous convictions for possession in 2018 and Class A drugs in 2019 as well as a drug driving charge in the same year and had now progressed to 'purchasing drugs wholesale by upstream suppliers and selling them'.

He said Mills had 13 previous offences of which seven were drug related.

Mr Brownless said the cases should be sent for sentence to the crown court as the magistrates powers were insufficient.

Mitigating, Helen Coney said Mills supplied cannabis to fund his on habit and to pay off a drug debt as well as some financial gain.

The magistrates imposed a 12 month conditional discharge for possessing cannabis in March and ordered him to pay £107 in court costs and charges.

On all the other matters he was sent for sentence at Lincoln Crown Court on a date to be arranged and was allowed unconditional bail.
