When the officers approached Gavin Huw Davies they recognised a lump of skink cannabis in his possession and seized 4.2 grammes of the drug.

When he appeared before magistrates in the town Davies, a 20-year-oold part-time carpentry student, of Min y Ffordd, Llanpumpsaint, pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing herbal cannabis on July 3.

He was fined £150 with £60 costs and a destruction order was made in respect of the seized cannabis.
