Hunstanton man admits drug-driving after A47 police stop
A Hunstanton chef has admitted driving with two drugs in his system.
A tip-off to police led to Kamruz Zaman being pulled over on the A47 at West Walton. He was carrying a passenger at the time.
Lynn Magistrates’ Court heard on Thursday that he admitted to having used drugs two days previously.
A roadside drug wipe tested positive for cannabis and cocaine.
An evidential test showed 75 micrograms of a cocaine derivative per litre of blood in his system (the legal limit is 50) and three micrograms of a cannabis derivative (limit two).
Solicitor George Sorrell, mitigating, said: “It doesn’t seem there was anything out of the ordinary about his driving.
“He was stopped and these substances were found in his blood.
“Being a good young person, he was foolish to take this stuff. He doesn’t regularly take drugs.”
Zaman, who pleaded guilty to two counts of drug-driving on May 24, was banned for 16 months.
He was also fined £230 and ordered to pay £105 costs plus a £34 victim surcharge.
