A MOLD woman has been fined after police found drugs in her home.

Cassie Lee, of Elm Drive, appeared at Mold Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The 32-year-old admitted that on December 3 last year she had in her possession a quantity of cannabis and ketamine.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that on the day of the offence, police had executed a warrant to search Lee's address.

In the kitchen they found a "white powder" and a "leafy substance."
When interviewed by police, Lee admitted they were cannabis and ketamine.

Gary Harvey, defending, told the court his client is a mum-of-three who has mental health difficulties and "uses drugs on a sparse basis."

District Judge Gwyn Jones said he took into account Lee's good character, handing her a fine of £100 for each of the drugs offences.

She must also pay £85 costs and a £34 victim surcharge, all of which will be deducted from her benefits.

The District Judge ordered that the drugs be forfeited and destroyed.
