Drug user found with heroin after leaving home of a drug dealer
POLICE stopped a man as he left the home of a Wisbech drug dealer, and found him in possession of a wrap of heroin.
Andzej Antonovic claimed he had been given the class A drug in lieu of a debt, and had intended to smoke it.
“Police on mobile patrol saw the defendant walking away from the address of a known drug dealer,” Fenland magistrates were told by Andrea Fawcett, prosecuting.
“A search was negative, but an officer noticed the defendant was holding something in his hand that he tried to hide, it was a wrap containing heroin.”
Appearing at Wisbech courthouse, Antonovic, 26, of Market Place, Wisbech, admitted possessing 0.2 grams of the drug on July 6.
