A DRUG-DRIVER was found carrying a knife disguised as a credit card, a court has heard.

Andre Campbell admitted one count of possessing cannabis and was found guilty of drug-driving and possessing a knife when he appeared before a district judge in Kidderminster.

The court heard Campbell had been caught behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Combo van on the A49 at Callow Hill in Herefordshire while over the drug limit on February 5.

An evidential blood test revealed the 33-year-old had seven microgrammes of cannabis metabolite delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol per litre of blood. The legal limit is two.

He was also found to be carrying a knife with a 2.5 inch fixed blade disguised as a credit card and a quantity of class B drug cannabis.

Campbell, of Cromer Gardens, Wolverhampton, was handed an interim driving ban and the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report to be carried out. He will appear for sentencing at Worcester Magistrates Court on October 25.
