A HEREFORDSHIRE man caught at a railway station with class A drugs has been up before the magistrates.

Jessie Stefan Hampsey admitted two counts of possessing controlled class A drugs when he appeared before magistrates in Telford.


The court heard from the prosecutor that the 45-year-old, who was represented at the hearing by defence solicitor Steve Meredith, had been caught in possession of 10 grams of controlled class A drug heroin and eight grams of controlled class A drug crack cocaine at Shrewsbury's Castle Forgate railway station on March 2.

Hampsey, of Longfield Way in Leominster, was fined £120, with magistrates saying they had taken his guilty plea into account when deciding on the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £185 and a £48 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime, while the drugs were ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
