A MAN caught with class A and B drugs in Hereford has been fined hundreds of pounds by magistrates. 

Tom Evans entered a guilty plea to one count of possessing a class B controlled drug and one count of possessing a class A controlled drug when he appeared before magistrates in December.

Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor Mark Hambling told magistrates in Hereford that the 43-year-old had been caught in possession of a quantity of class B drug cannabis and a quantity of class A drug heroin in Hereford on May 28.


Evans, of Kingsway, Hereford, was fined a total of £615 for the offences, with magistrates saying that they had taken his guilty pleas to both of the charges into account when coming to their decision on the penalty.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £135 and a £246 victim surcharge, which is used to help fund services supporting victims of crime.

Both the cannabis and the heroin found in his possession were ordered to be forfeited and destroyed.
