Drugs charges

AN Alnwick man has been given a conditional discharge after pleading guilty to two drugs offences.

Peter Pringle, 41, of Hotspur Place, admitted being in possession of amphetamines and supplying the drug at Green Batt in Alnwick on Thursday, March 31.

Last Thursday, South East Northumberland Magistrates’ Court heard that Pringle had been at a party when he found a bag of white powder left behind by a guest.

He asked for directions to the person’s house and put the drugs in an envelope and posted them through the door of a home on Lisburn Street - but it was the wrong address.

Pringle, who is already on remand awaiting trial, was given a twelve month conditional discharge for the offences.
