Brighton Hill man admits Ketamine stash was for personal use
A MAN’S personal stash of Ketamine was found when officers searched his friend’s flat.
Shane Reeves, 24, had left half a gram of the horse tranquiliser drug in a bag at the house of his friend Daniel Chapman, in King’s Road, South Ham, Basingstoke.
Kate Prince, prosecuting at Basingstoke Magistrates’ Court, said officers carried out a drugs warrant search at Mr Chapman’s address on June 5 this year.
She added: “There, they located Ketamine in a bag which Daniel Chapman said belonged to Reeves.
“Reeves was interviewed about the matter and was asked whether the bag was his. He confirmed it was and that the Ketamine in the bag was for his own use.”
Reeves, of Copland Close, Brighton Hill, Basingsstoke, admitted one count of possession of a class C drug. Defending himself in court, Reeves said: “I have never been done for drugs before. I know it’s illegal to hold it.”
He added: “It was for my own personal use and not for gain.”
Presiding magistrate Marian Foster fined Reeves £65, with £60 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
