POLICE discovered a bag of drugs under a door at a flat in Southampton’s inner city when they went to see a man in relation to another matter.

The bag was found to contain two now outlawed legal highs worth about £680.

Prosecutor Edward Phillips said Donovan Parker-Gordon was arrested and when his mobile phone was examined, it was discovered to contain messages about the onward supply of cannabis.

Parker-Gordon, 21, of Wilton Road, Southampton, admitted being concerned in the supply of cannabis and being in possession of Legal X and BZP.

Judge Peter Ralls QC followed the probation report’s recommendation and gave him a 12 months suspended sentence with 12 months supervision incorporating an order to attend a drugs treatment programme.

Parker-Gordon was said to have 12 previous convictions for 17 offences that included drugs possession and robbery.
