A ST Annes man has been fined for possessing cocaine.

David Bell, 42, of Lime Grove, admitted having the drug at his home and said it was for his own use.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, at Blackpool Magistrates Court said police had a warrant to search Bell’s home and found two bags containing small amounts of cocaine.

When he was arrested he admitted the drugs were his. He had once been addicted to the drug but no longer used it and forgot the bags were still at his house.

He was ordered to pay £200 in fines and costs.
