THE driver of a car found to contain more than �1,000 worth of cannabis bought in Littleport has been sentenced for a drugs offence.
Jonathan Maxfield did not own the cannabis -- but a search of his home the next day revealed a quantity of amphetamine.
"A single wrap of white powder was found, forensic tests showed it contained 125 mgs of amphetamine," prosecutor Laura Mardell told Ely magistrates.
At an earlier court hearing, co-defendant 22-year-old John Hawkins, of Walton Way, Brandon, had admitted possessing the cannabis with intent to supply and supplying the class B drug. He has been committed for sentence at Cambridge Crown Court.
