King's Lynn woman had drug on her to as 30th birthday treat, court told
A Fairstead woman’s 30th birthday turned out to be memorable for the wrong reasons after she was arrested and then found to have a class B drug on her.
Lauren High was taken into custody on March 3 for a matter unrelated to drugs.
But during a search at Lynn Police’s investigation centre, a small snap bag of white powder was discovered in her clothing, town magistrates were told on Thursday.
It turned out to be 1.59 grams of amphetamine.
High, of Telford Close, pleaded guilty possession of a class B drug.
Solicitor Charlotte Winchester, mitigating, said her client admitted to being “stupid” and having the drug for the special occasion.
She added: “It was her 30th birthday that day. The drug was for her own personal use – a very small amount.
“She’s very sorry for the matter coming before the court.”
High was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £100 costs and £22 victim surcharge.
