A 21-year-old Horncastle man was caught by police with drugs in his possession twice in the space of four months, Skegness Magistrates have been told.
Kieran Nagle, of Church Lane, admitted four charges of possession – two of possessing cannabis and Ketamine on July 26 and identical charges on November 12.
It was said that Nagle was seen by a police officer in an alleyway in Wharf Road in the early hours on July 26 and was seen to drop something to the ground.
The officer discovered 0.9 grams of cannabis and 0.69 grams of Ketamine which Nagle purchased for £10 for his own use.
On November 12, the officer went to Nagle’s home on an unrelated matter and discovered Nagle there with other people and found a small quantity of cannabis in a grinder and 0.24 grams of Ketamine.
In mitigation, Gordon Holt said Nagle had a conviction for possessing cocaine in 2011 and had been experimenting with drugs with friends for four or five years since leaving school.
However, he said that when Nagle was arrested a second time in November, he had decided things had to change and he had voluntarily gone to Addaction for help.
Mr Holt said Nagle no longer bought drugs and had largely cut off his use of drugs from his daily habit.
The magistrates gave Nagle a two year conditional discharge and ordered he pay £85 costs and a £15 surcharge.
