Grantham court: Cannabis case sent to crown court

Have your say

A man on a suspended sentence must appear before Lincoln Crown Court after he admitted being in possession of cannabis.

John Blenkinship of Houghton Road in Grantham was found by police officers to be in possession of around 18g of cannabis valued at around £180. Blenkinship said he expected the amount would last him about two weeks.

As he was in breach of his suspended prison sentence, magistrates sent the case to be heard at Lincoln Crown Court on July 8. Blenkinship, 40, was given unconditional bail.
