CLASS A drugs have been ordered to be destroyed after they were found in the possession of a Hereford man.

Marley Williams entered a guilty plea to one count of possessing a controlled class A drug when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford in May.

The court heard from Crown Prosecution Service prosecutor Camila Toscano that the 25-year-old had been caught in possession of a quantity of controlled class A drug cocaine in Hereford on September 30 last year.

Williams, who is of the Hawthorns, Hereford, was handed a conditional discharge following the offence, with magistrates saying they had taken his guilty plea to the charge into account when deciding on the penalty.


The cocaine was ordered to be forfeited and destroyed under section 27 of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

He was ordered to pay prosecution costs of £85 and a £26 victim surcharge.

He must make the full payment to the court by June 29.
