A man who admitted possessing heroin and stealing a bank card has been battling drugs for 30 years, a court heard yesterday.

Severino Duarte, 50, of Highgate, Lynn, threw away two wraps of the drug while being pursued by police in the town on December 12. After his arrest, his home was searched and a card, which he said he found and intended to hand in, was recovered.

Lynn magistrates gave Duarte a 12 month community order, with six months’ drug rehabilitation, and told to pay a £60 victim surcharge.
