Cocaine fell out of bra
POLICE found a woman with cocaine after a tip-off, a court heard.
Caroline Wood, 33, pictured, of Ravenspurn Way, Grimsby, admitted possessing 0.55g of the drug on June 28.
Brendan Woodward, prosecuting, told Grimsby Magistrates’ Court that police received information about the occupants of a car.
It was stopped in Moody Lane, Grimsby, and just before she was searched, a wrap of cocaine fell out of Wood’s bra.
She later claimed that she had found it and that she was going to take it home to look at what it was.
Wood was subject to a community order imposed on August 7 for theft and a conditional discharge made on September 6, also for theft.
Sarah Middleton, mitigating, said Wood was on a methadone programme and had previously been on a curfew, which she found useful because it stopped her offending and being led astray, as well as giving her some safety.
Unemployed Wood was given a 14-day 7pm to 7am curfew and was ordered to pay £85 costs.
