A YOUNG St Neots woman has admitted having more than £1,700 of cannabis in a bedroom wardrobe.

Police raided Gemma Bannon’s home in Musgrove Way on October 19 and found 159.64 grams of the class B drug in a cupboard along scales, a debt book and three mobile phones.

John Goodier, prosecuting, said although Bannon’s boyfriend had admitted that he intended to sell the drugs, the 19-year-old was charged because she knew the drugs were in the wardrobe. Mr Goodier added that Bannon had no previous convictions.

On Thursday, Bannon admitted possession of a class B drug.

Huntingdon magistrates gave Bannon a 12-month conditional discharge, and ordered to pay £50 costs and £15 victim surcharge

Bannon’s boyfriend is awaiting sentence at Peterborough Crown Court.
