Middleton man Jack Nesbitt caught buying cannabis in King’s Lynn





A man told police he intended to bake the cannabis he had purchased after he acquired nearly 30g of the drug.

Jack Nesbitt, 36, was caught red-handed while he visited a drug-dealing hotspot in Lynn on October 16.

He immediately showed officers the 28g of cannabis he had purchased, and admitted it was for personal use.

When he later voluntarily attended a police interview, he told officers he had intended to bake the drugs.

Nesbitt, of Churchwood Close in Middleton, appeared at Lynn Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, where he pleaded guilty to possession of a Class B drug.

He was fined £80, and will also pay £50 in court costs and a £32 victim surcharge.

In mitigation, duty solicitor George Sorrell told magistrates that Nesbitt is a single man who is unable to work at the moment.

He added that the defendant takes cannabis to help with his disabilities.

“He bought a fair quantity of this substance, because it was available and he felt that he needed it over a period of time to alleviate his symptoms,” Mr Sorrell said.
