Police who searched a man carrying wraps of crack cocaine and heroin were told “you’ve caught me”.

Andrew Robinson, of Water Lane, Ancaster, admitted possession with intent to supply crack cocaine and possession with intent to supply heroin.

The 25-year-old was stopped by police in Harlaxton Road in Grantham. Police checked his phone and found that he had just sent a text message which said: “being stopped and got everything”.

The officers searched Robinson and found nine 
bags in brown and white paper.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said that after Robinson was cautioned he told officers: “You’ve caught me.”

Rory Macmillan, defending, said Robinson, who lives with his parents in Ancaster, was not intending to supply drugs to make a commercial gain, but merely to share with friends.

Mr Macmillan said: “He said he was going to share it with his mates. It was not for financial gain.”

Magistrates asked for a report to be completed on Robinson before passing sentence.

Chair of magistrates Ian McDonnell said: “You obviously have a drug problem and we want to know more about that.”
