Gosport resident Ryan Paul King, 29 from Wilmott Close, appeared at Portsmouth Magistrate's Court after being caught with amphetamine on October 8.

King had almost a gram on the drug on him at the time of the arrest.

Pleading guilty inside the courtroom, King was given a conditional discharge for six months – meaning he will not be sentenced for the offence unless another crime is committed in that period.
