Man caught with cocaine sent to drug court

A man caught with cocaine has been ordered to take part in a drug treatment court programme.

Andrew Hayward, 43, admitted having the substance and drug equipment when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court last week.

The court heard that police found a metal socket while searching Hayward, from Pembroke, on Crow Lane on March 21, last year.

Officers seized the item and found a small amount of cocaine when they searched Hayward again at the Hamilton Police Station.

Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson ordered that Hayward observe drug treatment court beginning on July 9 and released him on $2,000 bail.

Hayward was also ordered to follow a daily curfew.
