A WORCESTER man has been fined for possession of Class B drugs which he “put in his coffee” in the morning, court heard.

Andrzaj Stec, of Fir Way in Worcester, pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and amphetamine at Worcester Magistrates Court on Friday (April 22).

On March 29, police were contacted by enforcement officers who executed a court warrant after the 37-year-old didn’t pay his council tax. They stumbled upon 30 grams of cannabis in a glass jar which was consistent with personal use and a small quantity of amphetamine worth £20 to £30, court heard.

Prosecuting, Adrian Jones, said: “Stec had reduced his alcohol intake and began using the drugs instead. He puts it in his coffee if he is up early. He didn’t say where he got the drugs from.”

Defending, Sunil Jagatia, said: “He made full and frank admissions. The cannabis was worth £40. He is a man of previous good character, he is single and works at a factory in Worcester.”

Stec was fined for £200 both offences, £185 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge. The drugs were forfeited and destroyed.
