8:00am Thursday 15th August 2013 in News
Naqeeb Hussain, 21, was travelling in a car that was stopped by police on the A629 close to the Silsden roundabout in the early hours of March 10, the court was told.
There was a strong smell of cannabis coming from the car and the driver and two occupants were told they would be searched and the car seized, magistrates heard.
When Hussain was searched, officers found four small bags of skunk cannabis weighing a total of 3.05grams and a herbal grinder hidden in his underwear.
Hussain, of Ruskin Avenue, Skipton and of previous good character, admitted possessing a Class B drug.
The court heard he was employed and was an intelligent man who had taken stock after being arrested and was now seeking help for his recreational drug use.
Magistrates fined him £185 with costs of £85 and A £20 victims surcharge. An order was made for the confiscation and destruction of the drugs and grinder.
