An “impressionable” Borough man must complete 150 hours of community service after pleading guilty to three counts of possessing class B drugs with intent to supply.
Police had approached Lious Norbal, of Marshalsea Road, after they saw him riding a moped in Borough High Street with the registration plate sprayed over on October 30. He was found to be carrying four bags of cannabis and his home was searched.
In total, police found 16.2 grams of cannabis, 43.8 grams of ethylone and 1.3 grams of prolintalone, along with various drug paraphernalia including four weighing scales and self-seal bags.
His defence solicitor argued that Norbal had been influenced and exploited by his friends, and that his bedroom was essentially used “as a storage locker.”
He said: “Basically he was used to help others. He will pick his friends more carefully in the future.”
The 20-year-old has one year to complete the community service order.
