Man wanted to sell drugs to his friends

POLICE who arrested a 21-year-old in a town centre nightclub found he was carrying eight bags of a Class B drug.

Grant Prince of Second Avenue, Grantham, was reported to the police after being seen snorting a white powder in Barcode. A police search at the station uncovered eight bags of methylethylcathinone - similar to mephedrone.

Mr Sheen, defending, said Prince, 21, intended to sell the drugs to his friends.

He added: “If he continued with that he would be way out of his depth. It is not something he should be doing or is capable of doing. He was caught at the first attempt.” Prince was given a six-month community order and must pay £44 in costs.
