A Waterside man was spared an immediate prison sentence after police found drugs and counterfeit cash at his home.

Martin Lennards was searched and found with a small amount of amphetamine in a cigarette paper.

Prosecutor Eleanor Fargin told Southampton Crown Court how officers carried out a search of the property and recovered the drug Mket and £300 in fake £10 notes.

Lennards, of Churchfields, Fawley, admitted two counts of possessing drugs and one of possessing counterfeit cash. He received a four-month suspended sentence with a nine-month drug rehabilitation requirement.
