A MAN who was found with cocaine and cannabis in his car has been hit with a court bill.

David Davies was stopped by police while travelling along Sea Road, South Shields, on Friday October 3

When they told the 37-year-old both he and his vehicle would be searched, he admitted there was a quantity of cannabis in the ashtray.

A search also uncovered a bag of cocaine hidden behind the dashboard.

Glenda Beck, prosecuting, told South Tyneside Magistrates Court: “He said the cannabis was for his own personal use and was valued at £5. He said the cocaine was also for his own use and there was about one gram of the drug, worth £20.”

Davies, of Bramham Court, South Shields, was fined £75 and ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a £20 victim surcharge, after admitting possession of Class A and B drugs
