A FATHER-of-two from Worcester has admitted possessing 10.4 grammes of amphetamine and breaching a conditional discharge.

Anthony Prosser, of Ullswater Close, Warndon, appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to possessing a form of the drug known as DMC as well as the breach of a 12-month conditional discharge he was handed in December last year for possession of cocaine.

Clare Linehan, prosecuting, told the court the 33-year-old was in a car which was stopped by police in the city centre at about 10.55pm on June 7.

“He said he’d been on a night out,” she said.

She added that Prosser, who has two children from a previous relationship and is studying engineering, had attempted to hide the drug inside the car.

“He said it was for personal use and the driver had no knowledge of it,” she said.

The court heard Prosser had bought the amphetamine for £20 to “pick himself up”.

The court ordered him to pay a £55 fine along with £85 costs for possessing the amphetamine as well as a £90 fine and a £20 victim surcharge for breaching the conditional discharge.
