A man was hiding the drug Mcat between his buttocks when police made a search.

Dale Rodney Kilgallon, 34, of Goodliff Road, Grantham, pleaded guilty to possession of 9.23 grams of Methcathinolel, also known as Mcat, at Grantham police station on October 28 last year.

Prosecuting, Daniel Pietryka said Kilgallon was being dealt with for another matter when the drug was found.

Mr Pietryka said it was “secreted between his buttocks”.

He said Kilgallon had told police he bought the drug the previous Sunday and he intended to inject it for his own use.

Defending, Rob Arthur said Kilgallon had been on a ‘downer’ following his separation from his partner and children and he wanted to cheer himself up.

He was later spoken to by the police and when they searched him, he handed over the drug.

He said Kilgallon was on employment support allowance.

Magistrates gave Kilgallon a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered him to pay £85 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

They ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the drugs.
