A 33-year-old Pembroke Dock man has appeared in court after being filmed sniffing cocaine from a letterbox in Haverfordwest town centre.
A CCTV camera filmed Benjamin Davies sniffing the Class A drug outside a property in Quay Street, Haverfordwest at around 1.30am on April 15.
Police officers were alerted and traced the defendant, who was accompanied by one other person, to a van that was parked nearby.
A search of the van was carried out and a wallet containing Davies’ driving licence was discovered on the back seat. Inside the wallet was a wrap of white powder which was later confirmed as being cocaine. The drug amounted to a total of 0.4 grams which had a street value of approximately £40.
Davies, of Bramble Hill Farm, Ferry Lane, Pembroke Dock pleaded guilty to the charge of possessing the Class A controlled drug when he appeared before Haverfordwest magistrates this week. He was represented in court by Mr Tom Lloyd.
“This was very foolish behaviour which my client greatly regrets,” he said.
Davies was fined £750 and ordered to pay a £300 surcharge and £85 costs.
