West Cumbrian cannabis in car pair sentenced by court

Two men from west Cumbria found to have cannabis in their car when stopped by police have appeared in court.

Driver Scott Stephens, 24, of Casson Road, Workington and passenger Harold Armstrong, 25, of Solway Road, Lowca near Whitehaven were arrested after a late-night police check on the M74 near Lockerbie in south-west Scotland.

Both men admitted being in possession of cannabis. Stephens also admitted being concerned in the supply of the drug.

Dumfries Sheriff Court heard that Stephens had cannabis with a potential street value of £6,000 while Armstrong had drugs to the value of £500.

They were made the subject of community payback orders with conditions that they are under supervision for 12 months.

Stephens was also ordered to do 300 hours of unpaid work.

Armstrong was placed under a home curfew from 7pm to 7am for two months.
