A Sutton man breached a court order when his cocaine was sniffed out by a police dog in Mansfield, magistrates have heard.

Jake Turley was arrested outside The Swan pub, on Church Street, Mansfield town centre, with two small bags of the class A drug, on November 12.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, said this would ordinarily attract a fine but Turley is currently subject to a two-year community order, imposed in February.

He was also ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work for two counts of battery and a malicious communications offence.

Turley, aged 26, of Hardwick Lane, Sutton, admitted drug possession.

He was fined £128 and ordered to pay a £51 surcharge and £85 costs.

Ordering forfeiture and destruction of the drugs, magistrates told Turley: “We have to announce that in court. You're obviously not going to get them back.”
