Craig John Siggee of Sulby Close Forest Town admitted possessing cocaine and failing to attend for an initial assessment following a test for a class A drug.

Police found a small amount of cocaine on him at Rewind in Mansfield on September 19 after staff detained him.

Siggee, 22, who pleaded guilty to both offences at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court told them he had paid £35 for the drug for his own use. He later tested positive for cocaine.

Siggee had been for a separate drug assessment on July 22, but he said he had gone straight to a party after and lost the paper work. He was fined £150 with a criminal court charge of £180, £20 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
