Cannabis found in driver's car by police
A carer who pulled his car out in front of a police vehicle was found with drugs.
Nicholas Carter, 39, of Wensleydale Avenue, Grange Park, pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis.
Jim Mowbray, prosecuting, said a police patrol was driving along the resort’s Westcliffe Drive on July 4 when Carter pulled out in front of them in his BMW. An officer in the patrol car immediately smelt cannabis.
Carter got out of the car and police found a large cannabis joint under the front wheel and another cannabis on the floor of the car.
Carter told magistrates it had been a very stressful time for him.
He had then put some of the drug in his pocket and forgotten about it.
He was fined £100 with £85 costs and ordered to pay £30 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.
